The OG Belle from Beauty and the Beast has some choice words for Emma Watson

The reigning princess has spoken.

The upcoming remake of Disney's Beauty and the Beast is basically the best #throwback to ever come back to cinemas.

Recreating something so iconic is a heck load of pressure, but we have so much faith in Emma Watson to nail the part, and so does the OG Belle, Paige O'Hara.

Paige voiced Belle in the 1991, and quickly became one of the most #boss Disney princesses of all time. Now, she has spoken to HitFix about how they couldn't have cast a more perfect Belle to fill in her shoes.

"I can't wait to meet her. She's perfect casting," she admitted.

"As I'm passing the torch to Emma – just enjoy the ride. You're going to be a heroine. You are already with all your other movies, but this one's going to last your entire life.When you're my age, you're going to be looking back at doing Beauty and the Beast," Paige continued.

It isn't the first time Paige has praised the hell out of Emma, and who can blame her? Emma is kween.

She previously told Buzzfeed that: "If I were producing the film, I would have cast her. I think she's absolutely perfect for the role." So we do Paige, so do we. Especially when you see her reading aloud some screenplay...

Now we wonder how the OG Mrs. Potts feels about her new, creepy as heck casting...

Bring on March 17 ASAP!
