The Harry Potter star broke the news on her own Facebook page, writing:
"I'm finally able to tell you… that I will be playing Belle in Disney's new live-action Beauty and the Beast! It was such a big part of my growing up, it almost feels surreal that I'll get to dance to 'Be Our Guest' and sing 'Something There'. My six year old self is on the ceiling - heart bursting. Time to start some singing lessons. I can't wait for you to see it. Emma xx"
We can't wait either!!
What do U think of the casting? Is your six-year-old self as excited as Emma's??
