Who Should Play Belle In The Live-Action Beauty And The Beast Movie?

beauty and the beast movie

Who fits the role best?

Remember last week when we announced that there was going to be a live-action Cinderella movie? Well, more awesome fairytale movie news: According to Deadline, Disney is considering making a live-action movie out of Beauty and The Beast! The movie would be called The Beast, but that’s pretty much all the details we have right now.

I am totally excited for this to maybe happen. Beauty and The Beast is one of my favorite Disney movies ever, right behind The Little Mermaid. Also, Belle is sort of one of my spirit animals. We both have dark hair and are obsessed with reading – guys, we’re practically twins.

And yeah, it’s a little creepy to think about a real-life “beast” and a real-life girl falling in love. Bestiality isn’t so bad when it’s a cartoon, but when it’s real people… hm. But hey, it’s a fairytale, right? They can get away with that type of stuff.

Now the only question I have is: if that happens, who should be cast as Belle, obviously the most important role in the film? Hey, Hollywood – I have some ideas if you’re interested. Which you’re probably not, but whatever, you should be. There were tons of rumors that Emma Watson might be cast as Cinderella in the live-action version, but I think Emma would be much better suited as Belle. Can’t you see it? Can’t you?!

But there are other options as well. Who do you want to see play Belle? Check out my picks below and vote on who you think would be best for the role.

  • Siobhan

    I want to play Belle is that an option. I know all the words to all of the songs, and seriously this would make a dream come true for me!

    Leighton Meester. just like lily said. Emma is nice to… But this role is totaly for Leighton.

    I’m getting used to Emilie de Raven on ‘Once Upon A Time’ but I don’t think I’d want to see her in a movie version. Meghan Ory is amazing though, and I think she could make a good Belle. Her character on ‘Once’ definitely has that stubborn, independent thing going, so I know she can play that type of character. Plus, she’s amazingly beautiful. I could also see Jennifer Lawrence as Belle. Oh goodness, could I see that.

    Now of these people work you see. Belle has very specific characteristics (physically & personally) For example Belle has a widow’s peek and a fair skin complexion. None of these people have both of them. I believe that if they were to pick an actress to play them, they should pick it the same way they pick the ones for the parks. None of these actresses would make the cut.

    I voted for Ashley Greene because at least she looks like Bell, Emma doesnt look anything like her…

  • Ursula

    emma is the only one I find respectable who hasn’t sold themselves out for tv trash. so I voted for her.

  • lily
