There goes Belle in her iconic blue-and-white dress!
In a new clip from Disney’s live-action version of Beauty and the Beast, Emma Watson puts her vocal range to the test while belting out the opening musical number, “Belle.” We watch the bookish heroine make her way through a poor, provincial town in France as she grabs rolls from the baker and skips across a pond. People turn their heads in amazement at the sight of this magnificent weirdo who spends countless hours daydreaming and reading books to sheep.
Although the clip is only about a minute long, it’s clear that director Bill Condon has nailed the theatricality of the beloved Disney classic. Plus, Watson is simply divine as Belle.
Are you impressed by her vocal chops? What do you make of Watson’s rendition of “Belle”?
