    'Beauty and the Beast': Watch Emma Watson's Deleted Scene (Exclusive)

    Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast, a two-hour-plus spectacle stuffed with a dozen songs, hundreds of characters, and new scenes that fleshed out some plot holes from the animated original, left several bits on the cutting-room floor. Now, Yahoo Movies has your exclusive first look at one of those deleted scenes featuring Emma Watson‘s heroine (watch it above). Director Bill Condon had conceived this scene to come early in the film, as Belle makes her way around her “provincial town” and interacts with its denizens.

    “Bill semi-tricked me on the day” she sang “How Does a Moment Last Forever,” Watson told Yahoo Movies (watch above). Then “Bill was like, ‘No.’ I was like, ‘No! I was tricked,'” Watson laughed. Watson and costar Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey), who plays the Beast, took no exception with Condon’s method.

    Next month, Disney will invite moviegoers to be their guest for their sweeping live-action version of Beauty and the Beast. From the looks of its initial trailers (the latest of which was set to Ariana Grande and John Legend’s rendition of the classic title track), Bill Condon’s re-do will be faithful to its source material — which was the first animated film to ever receive a nomination for Best Picture at the Academy Awards. And in a new interview, its star, Emma Watson, is now revealing what it was like to work for — and at — her role as yellow-dressed princess Belle.

    Final 'Beauty and the Beast' Trailer Runs Through Classic Scenes to New Ariana Grande-John Legend Duet

    With the release of its second and final full trailer, Disney’s live-action reboot of Beauty and the Beast has delivered its rebooted theme song. The 2-minute, 24-second clip premiered Monday night during ABC’s The Bachelor, a synergistic bit of programming that saw the film’s resident baddies, Luke Evans (Gaston) and Josh Gad (LeFou), hosting the telecast and introducing the trailer, our most in-depth look yet at the Bill Condon-helmed remake. The trailer, which is now up on Facebook, follows the basics of the 1991 Disney cartoon classic — book-loving Belle feels stifled by her small-minded town (embodied by the narcissistic Gaston), but her inventor father, Maurice (Kevin Kline), believes she will be safer there than out in the dangerous world.

    Disney's Original Belle, Paige O'Hara, Says Emma Watson Is 'Perfect' for New 'Beauty and the Beast'

    It’s a tale as old time, but Beauty and the Beast became forever etched into the pop-culture consciousness in 1991 thanks to Disney’s mega-hit, the first animated film ever to be nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars. To celebrate the film’s 25th anniversary (and its sparkly new Blu-ray edition), the film’s lead voice star Paige O’Hara — a Broadway actress best known at the time for the 1983 revival of Showboat — stopped by Yahoo Movies for a Facebook Live interview (which you can watch above). —The filmmakers hired O’Hara to play the free-spirited bookworm Belle for her voice and her voice alone, which she found out after five minutes of first doing a more cartoonish, Ethel Merman-esque riff on the character.

    10 Great Movies Ruined By Bad Acting

    The three plucky British youngsters selected to play the roles of Harry, Ron and Hermione could’ve sunk the most successful film franchise of all time before it’d even had a chance to get settled in. If that sounds like we’re being mean, even Radcliffe himself admitted he’s embarrassed by his work in the early Potter films.
