The moment the live-action Beauty and the Beast came out, we were obsessed, as was pretty much all of the world.
In fact, we loved it so much that we’ve already made our plea to Disney to get a sequel made stat. Now, the star of the film, Emma Watson (who played the enchanting Belle), has revealed what she’d like to see in a follow-up story, and her ideas are obviously spot-on.
“I would love to do a sequel,” Watson told Access Hollywood at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of The Circle this week.
As for what she wants to see, it involves a LOT of books. Did you really expect anything less?
“I always thought Belle would become a teacher, and she would run the library in the castle and open it up to the village,” she said. “This was where I was going.”
Belle teaching everyone how to read, or at least to love books as much as she does, would be a wonderful story idea. While Watson didn’t offer any ideas for what the Beast could be up to in the sequel, we’re thinking he could teach as well — but his courses would be about horseback riding or proper etiquette at a dinner party. Something tells us he would excel at that.
