Emma Watson’s alter ego Hermione Granger would doubtless approve of her HeForShe campaign and its gutsy, smart take on feminism.

It’s especially refreshing to see men invited to join the fight for gender equality, as Watson pointedly did in launching the U.N. effort last fall, telling the men that it’s “your issue too.”

It’s also refreshing to see her vigorous embrace of feminism, which Watson defines as “the theory of political, economic and social equality of the sexes.” And apparently she lives by it. Although she is one of the world’s highest-paid actresses, she has spoken out about the paucity of female directors in Hollywood.

Watson was only 9 when she auditioned for the part of Hermione, and she appeared in every Harry Potter film to the end. She followed Hogwarts with a degree in English literature from Brown University.

Her HeForShe speech at Davos was an Internet sensation, but unsurprisingly, it drew the typical antifeminist rants and even some threats. Watson chose to highlight the moving letters she has received from fathers who tell her they are investing new hope in the future for their daughters. But she was also frank about the bullying tactics of her detractors and one site that made an empty threat to release nude photos. Her confident and cool reaction: “If they were trying to put me off, they did the opposite.”

Whoever is casting Disney’s live-action musical Beauty and the Beast knows exactly what he or she is doing. Variety reports that Sir Ian McKellen is the latest big name to to join the cast. That’s right, in a fever dream only Disney could concoct, one of England’s most legendary thespians will be playing the fussy butler turned clock, Cogsworth.

McKellen will join Emma Watson as Belle, Luke Evans as Gaston, Dan Stevens as the Beast, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, Audra McDonald as the wardrobe, Josh Gad as Le Fou, and Kevin Kline as Belle’s father, Maurice. As for Cogsworth’s partner in crime, the dashing Lumière, we can only assume our first choice, Jean Dujardin, is stuck in negotiations. Go ahead and tell me there’s a better option out there.

The more Disney’s lucrative live-action trend grows, the more talent we can expect to see attached to these projects. It’s much easier to convince a McKellen or an Emma Thompson to play part of the décor when you can point to Cate Blanchett as a cat-toting evil step-mother, Helena Bonham Carter as a fairy godmother, and Angelina Jolie as Maleficent.

We’ve yet to see how, exactly, the live-action aspect will affect characters like Cogsworth and Mrs. Potts. We’re pretty confident that, unlike in the stage play, the actors playing members of the Beast’s enchanted household will not be forced into clock or tea-pot costumes. So will the likes of McKellen and Thompson only be providing their voices to the film? How will director Bill Condon capture their extremely expressive faces? I suppose we can chalk all that up to the magic of Disney in the digital age. Production on Beauty and the Beast will begin later this year and the film is scheduled to open on March 17, 2017.
