With the perfect casting of Emma Watson as Belle, people didn't fear that she wouldn't have the acting chops for the role. But many wondered: can that girl sing of nah?
Thanks to a Hasbro Belle doll, we have our answer.
Spoiler alert: The answer is yes.
Emma Watson can sing, and she sounds so much like Belle that my inner child is screaming like she was just told that despite losing her little league game, her coach was still buying everyone pizza.
SHE IS PARTYING LIKE IT'S 1991, Y'ALL.
The doll has an audio clip of Watson singing "Something There" that was leaked on Thursday by a fan who found the doll in stores.
A producer on the film, Jack Morrissey, posted the clip to his Instagram -- so it is confirmed.
This is not a drill. This is how Watson sounds.
Even through the grainy audio, you can tell that Watson is the perfect bookworm-turned-beast-tamer.
During a Facebook Live Q&A, he said,
...[T'here's such curiosity, joy, excitement and buzz about [the film]... That's an enormous amount of pressure, actually, but also something that we all take very seriously. Every day we're making this movie, we know what the bar is, and we're trying to match that bar, if not exceed it in some ways. So we're very well aware of that.
