Emma Watson Won’t Be Disney’s Cinderella

     March 11, 2013


Last month Emma Watson was linked to new live-action fairy tale remakes: Beauty and the Beast and Cinderella.  Playing both Belle and Cinderella is probably too much princess for any one actress, so Watson has understandably ruled out one project.  Variety’s Marc Graser tweeted, “Emma Watson has decided NOT to star in Disney’s CINDERELLA.”  Graser did not explain Watson’s reasoning, but did tweet in reply, “Details to come.”  So stay tuned.

Disney may go back to the drawing board with the original shortlist: Saoirse Ronan (Hanna), Gabriella Wilde (The Three Musketeers) Alicia Vikander (A Royal Affair).  Cate Blanchett is expected to play the evil stepmotherKenneth Branagh (Thor) will direct.  The studio hopes to get Cinderella in front of cameras in London this fall for a possible 2014 release.

      And when she does flash us getting out of a limo, it’s well groomed. Pure class.

    Such a pity, she came to my mind as first option, well I am curious who is going to be this princess then :) Still czech actress Šafrankova will probably be the best for me ….

    can’t people be happy enough that Emma Watson is still gonna play Belle in the new Beauty and the Beast? Why must she play two disney princesses to appease you people?
    It’s probably for the better…and it’ll allow her to make her character Belle that much better
