Of course she was not basically the iconic star of the new live-action remake of Disney’s 1991 animated classic, but a person could be forgiven for a brief confusion after seeing her in a lovely yellow spaghetti strap gown that echoed Belle’s ball gown.

As you may remember, in one of the movie’s most unforgettable moments, Belle wears a yellow ballgown to dance with the Beast.

But Watson was not on stage at Lincoln Center’s Beale Theater on Monday to dance. Instead, she spoke to the crowd from the New York Film Society for Children to share her love of reading, which mirrors Belle’s.

In the tale (both animated and live-action), it’s books as much as that iconic dance that propels the romance between Beauty and the Beast; both share a passion for reading that helps her see him in a new light.
