Celine Dion fans were waiting impatiently for this moment: the singer had announced that she would perform a new title for the remake of The Beauty and the Beast and it is now done.

"It was the first time I realised how powerful an animated movie can be". Then she began making all these insane demands, like rehearsals for the film must be done in London - for a film called "La La Land"!

Either way, Emma Stone won an Oscar for La La Land and Beauty And The Beast has broken records for ticket sales before it's even out, so it all worked out for everyone in the end, which is lovely. I knew I had to do the work.

Watson sings the part of book-loving, Beast-reforming Belle.

Speaking previous year, La La Land director Damien Chazelle revealed there were many changes made to the film in its early stages of production.

Now, the Harry Potter star has finally spoken about losing out on the critically-acclaimed film, and said it was her firm commitment to Beauty and the Beast that eventually led her to decline the role of Mia. "So, you know, scheduling conflict-wise, it just didn't work out". While there are several Disney movies streaming on Netflix, the original Beauty and the Beast is not one of them, unfortunately. "Definitely nothing planned at the moment", she said, "I wouldn't want to get anyone's hopes up. ask me in another 10 [years]".

Damian added: "And neither of those casting things wound up lasting or working out".

"I struggle to think of mainstream films that portray heterosexual relationships in a biblical way yet we don't hesitate to curl up and watch the complete series of "Bridget Jones Diary" or tune into 'Eastenders, '" Aylen argued.

Watson was of course also called upon to address the inclusion of a gay character (Le Fou, played by Josh Gad) in Bill Condon's "Beauty and the Beast" revamp that's caused Russian Federation to slap the film with an age restriction, and an Alabama theater to pull it altogether.
