Half a year before the release!
Here are the concept arts for Belle's "village outfit" and her home:
Below is the logo of 'Beauty and the Beast' on a cap signed by Emma for 'Caps for Kids'. Their mission is "to provide every child that is diagnosed and undergoing treatment for cancer or receiving chemotherapy to treat other life threatening illnesses a cap autographed by the athlete, entertainer or other notable celebrity of their choice."

The diamond edition of Disney's original 'Beauty and the Beast' has finally been released. I haven't found any video with Emma, but some people made gifs. The moment of the second gif was Emma recording a song, but people who bought the Blu-ray told me you can't hear her sing, you can only see her.
And last but not least, for the 25th anniversary of the original 'Beauty and the Beast', Paige O'hara, who voiced Belle, gave an interview and talked about Emma:
Paige O’Hara, who voiced the kindhearted, book-loving Disney princess in the animated movie, hasn’t met Emma Watson, but she told me, “I can’t wait to meet her,” when I interviewed the Disney icon last week. Most of my chat with her was about the 1991 film for its 25th anniversary but we also looked forward to the upcoming live-action movie.
“She’s perfect casting,” O’Hara gushed about the Harry Potter alum. Watson got her predecessor’s stamp of approval earlier this year when O’Hara told BuzzFeed, “She’s got the outward beauty, but she’s also got an inward beauty about her, and an old soul.” I just had to ask O’Hara if she has any advice for Watson as she’s gearing for Beauty and the Beast’s release.
“Me? Giving Emma advice?” O’Hara laughed. “Oh, gosh.”
Emma Watson already conquered the task of taking on a much-beloved character when she brought Hermione Granger to the big screen. Surely, though, it wouldn’t hurt to have a bit of wisdom from the actress who gave an iconic performance of Belle before her? O’Hara did end up offering up some advice for the 26-year-old Brit:
“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.”
