It’s new, but not at all alarming.
Although Emma Watson may not be as active in the music realm as she is in acting, the actress is more than ready to showcase her singing skills for her role in “Beauty and the Beast“. As a New Year’s treat, Disney released a 30-second audio clip of Watson singing “Something There” from the movie soundtrack.
The 26-year-old star previously opened up to The Telegraph last year about singing for her role as Belle. “I sing, so that’s really unexpected. 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,” she told the publication.
“It gives me a different challenge, really. That’s terrifying in and of itself!” she added. “Something There” was written as a duet for Belle and the Beast, by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, for the 1991 animated film.

In case you didn’t know, the actress also revealed that some changes has been made to Belle’s backstory to explain why she was an outcast. The remake will give viewers a better insight into the character’s intellectual pursuits.
“Beauty and the Beast” will hit cinemas on 17th March 2017.
