In an interview with Red Carpet News, Beauty and the Beast director Bill Condon talked about filming and the casting of Emma Watson.
“It’s exciting, we’re into our first month of shooting. It’s just been every day, to be on these huge sets that represent the Beasts castle, to see these musical numbers, we’re all pinching ourselves. It’s just been a very exciting, very kind of realistic telling of that story.” He said about Emma, “Oh my God, I think she’s going to blow everybody away. We’ve already done two of her musical numbers. She’s a beautiful singer, a wonderful dancer. She’s become one for this movie, she’s just one of the hardest working people I’ve ever met, and she’s really doing a beautiful job so far.”
