Emma Watson Kills Our Dreams; Will Not Be Cinderella

By  | 



Despite reports that Emma Watson was getting fitted for her glass slipper, she will not be playing the lead in the live-action Cinderella film (even though Harry Potter prepared her for the role). Variety‘s Mark Graser says, “Emma Watson has decided NOT to star in Disney’s CINDERELLA… Details to come.” And that’s it for now. Whomp whomp.

Though no official word has been given as to Emma’s reasoning, some suggest that it may be because she’s linked to Guillermo Del Toro’s remake of Beauty & the Beast, and playing two princesses may not be the smartest career move for her.

So who will play the beloved character? Saoirse Ronan (The Host, The Lovely Bones), Gabriella Wilde (Carrie, The Three Musketeers) and Alicia Vikander (Anna Karenina) were said to be testing for the part at one point. Maybe Disney will go back to the original drawing board then?

We do know a couple of things for certain. Cate Blanchett will play Evil Stepmother Lady Tremaine in Cinderella, while Emma Watson still has other confirmed roles to play. Like Nicki in The Bling Ring! In the first teaser trailer for the flick, Emma and her friends are shown breaking and entering into the houses of Hollywood A-listers, and robbing them blind. Pretty much the exact opposite of the aforementioned characters, eh?

Are you bummed that Emma won’t be Cinderella? Or did you not see it happening to begin with? Who do you think would be good for the part? Tell us your thoughts in the comments!
