We鈥檙e ALL about live-action remakes of our fave childhood movies (did you hear a live-action聽Lion King is in the works? YAS!), but it鈥檚 the Beauty and the Beast revamp starring Emma Watson that has us (and every other rabid Disney fan alive) particularly excited. Every single glimpse we鈥檝e gotten so far, from the teaser trailer to the candid on-set snaps and costume sketches, has made our hearts sing with joy, but the just-released first photos of Emma in full Belle costume have us totally freaking.

Though we got a quick glimpse of her playing our bookish heroine during a table read (courtesy of the film鈥檚 animated anniversary DVD) back in September, shots/clips of Emma in full-on Belle costume have been very closely guarded 鈥 until now. While we鈥檒l still have to wait until March 17 to see the film hit theaters (and what a hard wait that鈥檚 going to be!), these two newly leaked stills are pretty much giving us life.

First up is Emma wearing Belle鈥檚 classic blue dress, white shirt combo atop her beloved bookcase ladder, tomes in arms. As @AgentSpiderMan perfectly pointed out on Twitter, 鈥淓mma Watson as Belle is one of the best decisions Disney has ever made.鈥 Seriously, we couldn鈥檛 agree more.

And don鈥檛 even get us started on Emma in Belle鈥檚 gold gown from the ball (honestly, our fave scene *swoon*) while dancing with Dan Stevens鈥 Beast! @PatronusMalec practically read our minds when he wrote: 鈥淥H MY GOD EMMA WATSON AS BELLE LOOKS FLAWLESS.鈥

She really does looks absolutely beautiful, and we simply cannot wait to relive all the magic of Beauty and the Beast on the big screen next spring!
