Everyone knows that things are cuter in miniature — and Belle and the Beast from Disney's Beauty and the Beast are no exception. Melting our hearts with their adorable costumes, faces and shy questions, mini-Belle Olivia and mini-Beast Ted got to meet their Disney heroes, Emma Watson and Dan Stevens and ask them some questions and the reaction of the stars is priceless.

'Playing Belle Was My Childhood Dream Come True!'

Upon entering the room and being completely gushed over by Emma and Dan, mini-me's Ted and Olivia took their seats in the interviewers chairs opposite the stars. Things got off to a hilarious start after Dan asked Olivia where she got her beautiful Belle dress from and she gesticulated to those nobodies behind the camera and replied, like a true princess:

"I don't know, they gave it to me!"

After they'd finished laughing, Olivia then asked Emma what it was like playing Belle in the movie and Emma responded that like a real fairytale, it was a childhood dream come true:

"It was like my childhood dream come true. She [Belle] was one of my absolute favorites and I watched the film a million times, over and over again as a child, so to get to wear the dress and sing the songs was just amazing."

If They Had The Chance, Emma & Dan Would Love To Swap Their Roles!

After mini-Beast Ted asked both Emma and Dan who they'd play if they both had to take on the role of another character in the movie, without skipping a beat both of them answered with each others roles — Dan saying he'd play Belle, and Emma saying she'd play the Beast.

Dan in particular seemed very enamored with mini-Belle Olivia's dress saying that the combination of her yellow ball gown with her boots was very in-line with Emma's on-screen version of Belle stating:

"It’s a mixture of beautiful princess dress but with very cool practical boots, it’s very on point."

Singing In The Movie Made Emma & Dan Incredibly Nervous

After Olivia asked whether acting or singing in Beauty and the Beast made them feel more nervous, Emma & Dan answered without hesitation that the singing element of the movie was definitely more terrifying with Emma saying:

"It was the first time Dan and I had ever done that in a film before so I think we were both quite nervous."

Well, we couldn't tell guys!


Who wore Belle's yellow gown best, Emma or Olivia?
