Emma Watson Talks Stockholm Syndrome and 'Beauty and the Beast'

Disney has released a brand new clip from the Beauty and the Beast live-action movie!

So when she got the offer to play as Belle in the live-action adaptation of "Beauty and the Beast", she did not hesitate to accept the role. Recently, a promo clip unveiled the iconic musical sequence where Belle (Emma Watson) met several townspeople on her way to the bookstore. The scene looks bright and colourful with Emma Watson doing a good job as the main character. I can also say that I love Luke Evans as Gaston in the movie.

"Beast and Belle begin their love story really irritating each other and really not liking each other very much", she said.

But one interesting thing missing is the book in Belle's hand in the original, which was her favourite accessory in the 1991 animated classic.

Watson explained her eye-catching Oscar de la Renta outfit, comprised of a floral bustier and black pants with a bright red sash across the waist, was created by the brand's new co-creative directors Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia using organic silk and organic wool. They think that she does not behave like everyone expects her to which makes her the peculiar Belle.

Watson's rendition may not be on par with the original song featured in the Disney animated film sung by Paige O'Hara, however, the "Harry Potter" actress was able to adjust her vocals to fit the classic tune.

When the British star gets time off, she is a "fanatical nester" and enjoys long periods in her own company.

"We snuck out of the junket and onto the roof of the hotel to capture these shots against the attractive Paris skyline". Her Belle is given a neat feminist twist ― she's the inventor, not her father.

Beauty and the Beast opens in theaters on March 17th.

It can be recalled that Watson took a year off from the big screen to focus on raising awareness to her United Nations campaign urging men to back off from mistreating and maligning women.

She said: "Hermione was that ideal example of turning on its head this initial prejudice that she gets".
