  1. I am kind of over the Pirates franchise for now; the third one was about my limit. However, the simple fact that Beauty and the Beast is coming to the big screen BLOWS ME AWAY! Emma Watson playing Belle just makes it all the more better. She is amazing and I can't wait to see her rock the character of Belle like she rocked Hermione! Awesome news! You seriously just made my whole night. I am with Emma: "I'm on the ceiling!"

    1. Yes I think the Pirates are a bit played out but maybe bringing in a fresh face will help it out. And yes I think Emma will make a great Belle!
