This might have just made my month! In honor of the Walt Disney Signature Collection release of Beauty and the Beast, the original voice actress Paige O’Hara decided to share some magical advice to Emma Watson as she prepares to bring Belle to the big screen.
“As I’m passing the torch to Emma—just enjoy the ride. You’re going to be a heroine. You already are with all of your other movies, but this one’s going to last your entire life. When you’re my age, you’re going to be looking back at doing Beauty and the Beast.”
I think I just melted and I’m not the intended recipient of this heartfelt message!
In case you need a reminder of how Watson has already charmed everyone in the clip of her and Dan Stevens at a table read for the film, check it out again:
Beauty and the Beast Walt Disney Signature Collection is available to download now on Digital HD or Disney Anywhere. It will be released on Blu-Ray on September 20.
The live-action Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson will have everyone weeping in joy on March 17, 2017.
