Monday, a new clip from the upcoming live-action remake of "Beauty and the Beast" was published on the movie's official Facebook page, and Emma Watson absolutely crushed it while singing the lyrics to "Belle."

The video, which has racked up over 18 million views on Facebook, was also published on the Disney Movie Trailers YouTube page.

Unbelievable pipes on Watson, right? Well, what if I told you the best part about this clip has nothing to do with Belle singing at all?

Just hear me out.

In the above clip, you can see Belle having a chat with Monsieur Jean, and she asks him if he's "lost something again."

In responce to Emma Watson's, Belle's, question, Monsieur Jean says,

I believe I have. Problem is, I can't remember what.

Haha! Hehe! So what, right? Well, if you've stayed with me this long, I'm about to explain to you how the above line appears to be a direct reference to "Harry Potter."

See, according to reports, the above conversation never took place in the animated, original version of "Beauty and the Beast." In the original version, Monsieur Jean says,

That's nice. Marie! The baguettes!

So, where are the bloody baguettes, Emma???

Here comes the "Harry Potter" reference, kids!

Apparently, in "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," there's a moment where Dean Thomas points out Neville Longbottom has a "Remembrall."

In response to Dean's comment, a young Emma Watson as Hermione Granger says,

I've read about those. When the smoke turns red, it means you've forgotten something.

Neville Longbottom hears this and replies,

The only problem is, I can't remember what I've forgotten.


Don't Neville's words sound an awful lot like Monsieur Jean's??? Don't you see it???

This is 100 percent not a crazy conspiracy theory, guys! Just think about it for a minute. There's way too much here for it to be just a coincidence.

I mean, think what you want, but the facts are the facts.

Remember the facts!
