Although Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint are now full-grown adults and have new other projects, they will always be remembered as Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley from the "Harry Potter" franchise. Now, even with a new huge film to be released soon, it seems that Emma Watson just can't shake off her inner Hermione Granger in Disney's "Beauty And The Beast" movie.

To remind everyone that live action "Beauty And The Beast" will be in theaters very soon, Disney released another clip from the much-awaited movie. The 58-second teaser trailer called "Belle" Clip showed Emma Watson (Belle) talking to villager and their conversation reminded the Potterheads of a scene from "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone."

“Good morning, Monsieur Jean. Have you lost something again?” Belle asked in the "Beauty And The Beast" clip. “I believe I have. Problem is, I can’t remember what,” Monsieur Jean replied. Although it seemed like a normal scene from the live action movie, Huffington Post noted that there may be a "Harry Potter" reference to it.

The site then shared a "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" scene where Neville Longbottom (Matthew Lewis) received a Remembrall. Emma Watson's famous character, Hermione Granger, then explained what the ball filled with smoke was about. “I’ve read about those. When the smoke turns red, it means you’ve forgotten something.” Just like Monsieur Jean in "Beauty And The Beast," Neville Longbottom replied, “The only problem is, I can’t remember what I’ve forgotten.”

While many were amazed by the similarities of the lines from "Beauty And The Beast" and "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," a Redditor kind of bursted everyone's bubble by debunking the alleged HP easter egg. The user said that the "forgetting something you've forgotten" line is not an exclusive "Harry Potter" reference, but an old gag that has been used many times before.
