Disney has been baiting us for some time now with promotional photographs and trailers in order to whet our appetites for the live-action Beauty and the Beast. Now we have a clip of Emma Watson—Belle—singing the opening song by the same name.

OG parents Chrissy Teigen and John Legend took 10-month-old Baby Luna to the Downtown Aquarium in Houston, Texas and to New Orleans for the NBA All-Star Game.
Please first turn your attention to the cheeks on that little cherub.
Now, check out the tiny basketball jersey and noise-canceling headphones. But also the cheeks.
