Belle has always been my favourite Disney Princess because she likes to read and is strong-willed and sticks up for what she believes in.
Emma Watson - aka Hermione, aka one of my favourite HP characters who loves books - playing Belle.
My childhood has come full circle.
Little girls are going to watch the new live-action Beauty and the Beast and see Belle: they’ll see a strong girl who is stubborn, strong-willed, intelligent, loves to read and stands up for what she believes in. She’s inventive, not afraid to stand up to Gaston, not afraid to do something if it means saving a loved one.
I just think that’s such a good image for girls to see!
