One of the most anticipated films of 2017 is Disney’s live-action adaption of the animated classic Beauty and the Beast. While the trailers for the film have only heightened the excitement for fans, audiences have yet to be given a preview of the new actors’ singing the beloved songs from the original film. Now, BeautyandtheBeastMovieNews has shared a post originally posted by Instagram user @bellabestiason that appears to offer the first glimpse of star Emma Watson singing a song from the original film.
The recording is from Hasbro’s new Belle doll, recently spotted on store shelves, and it appears to be using Emma Watson’s voice singing the song titled “Something There”. The song was written by lyricist Howard Ashman and composer Alan Menken for the original animated film. You can listen to the audio clip below!
