Emma Watson has confirmed she's to play Belle in a live action version of Disney's Beauty and the Beast.
She shared the news on her Facebook page, saying the cartoon was a "big part of growing up".
The film will be directed by Bill Condon, who previously made Twilight: Breaking Dawn Parts 1 and 2.
Revealing the news, Watson said: "I'm finally able to tell you... that I will be playing Belle in Disney's new live-action Beauty and the Beast!"
"It almost feels surreal that I'll get to dance to 'Be Our Guest' and sing 'Something There'. My six-year-old self is on the ceiling. Heart bursting."
There is currently no release date for the new version.
