It’s been in speculation for years (since 2011), but now, Harry Potter star Emma Watson will officially take on a new role of another beloved and bookish heroine, Belle.

According to a Disney press release, filming will begin later this year but has no release date just yet. The movie will be directed by Bill Condon, who directed The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.

TIME magazine has already put together a pretty spot-on list of 10 Things Beauty and the Beast’s Belle and Harry Potter’s Hermione Have in Common to support why this is such a brilliant choice for a leading lady.

Now, who do you think should be cast as The Beast?
