Emma Watson Says Belle Has A New Backstory In The Beauty And The Beast Remake!
Bravo Emma Watson! Bravo!
According to an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the former Harry Potter star says her character — Belle — has an all-new backstory in the live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast.
In the Disney original, Belle is the daughter of an inventor and spends her days reading books. However, Miz Watson was NOT feeling this!
In the upcoming flick, Belle is the inventor while her dad travels the world making music boxes.
The 26-year-old said:
“In the animated movie, it’s her father who is the inventor, and we actually co-opted that for Belle… I was like, ‘Well, there was never very much information or detail at the beginning of the story as to why Belle didn’t fit in, other than she liked books. Also what is she doing with her time?’ So, we created a backstory for her, which was that she had invented a kind of washing machine, so that, instead of doing laundry, she could sit and use that time to read instead. So, yeah, we made Belle an inventor.”‘
We seriously can’t wait for this movie! It’s going to be SO good!
