We are literally counting down the days until Emma Watson鈥檚 turn as Belle in Disney鈥檚 upcoming live-action flick, Beauty and the Beast (there are 189 to go, jusstttt in case you were curious). The film is out March 17, and while we鈥檝e seen a few pics from the flick and even gotten a little taste of Emma鈥檚 table read, sans for a quick flash of her face in the teaser trailer, we鈥檝e seen very little in the way of her actual costumes from the film.

Luckily, our friends over at Hello Giggles have uncovered some special footage from Disney鈥檚 25th animated anniversary edition of the original Beauty and the Beast film (now available in iTunes) that has us gazing upon our very first glimpse of (gasp!) Emma鈥檚 鈥減easant Belle鈥 costume.

While the rendering is billed as 鈥渆arly concept art,鈥 suggesting that alterations are entirely possible, it gives us a pretttttty good idea of what the dress will likely look like.


Aside from the swap of a white apron for some more functional side towels and ballet flats for some more practical boots, the costume sketch is nearly identical to the cartoon version, and it鈥檚 enough to have us envisioning Emma strolling along the provincial town square, singing about her hopes and dreams with book in tow. Squee!!!

In the meantime, if anyone needs us, we鈥檒l be watching the 25th anniversary edition on repeat: Bye, world.

Do you think the live-action film will live up to its hype? Share with us over @BritandCo!
