Video: Emma Watson Describes What She Loves About “Beauty and the Beast”

There’s just over a month to go until the highly anticipated live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson, hits theaters. Emma and her co-star, Dan Stevens, recently spoke to Pinkvilla about what to expect.

Emma describes Belle as a “feisty young woman who speaks her mind” and says she has loved her and loved the story since she was four.

Meanwhile, Dan Stevens, who of course plays the Beast, talks about what audiences love about the animated film and how the filmmakers hope to retain those aspects in the new movie:



Beauty and the Beast opens March 17 in the US and UK.
