Fans of the Disney's 1991 animated classic can count on Emma Watson to do an incredible job as Belle. She tells EW that she loved the original movie as a child and "can't even think" how many times she watched while growing up. She admits that she knows all the words to the songs by heart, something that will obviously serve her well while she plays the role of Belle.

And yes, Emma will sing the songs she knows so well, something that's new for her.

"I sing, so that's really unexpected," Emma tells EW. "I've never had to do that for a film role before, and I think people will be interested to see me do something very different like that."
