Casting News: Emma Thompson in Talks for Mrs. Potts

The Oscar-winning actress is in negotiations to play Mrs Potts, the housekeeper turned into a teapot, in the live action film version of Disney’s Beauty And The Beast. 
The kindly Mrs Potts helps Belle, the tale’s heroine, sort out her romantic entanglements. Emma Watson will star as Belle. 
Director Bill Condon has been working with composer Alan Menken about which songs from the 1991 animated movie will feature in the new picture. (Source)
So will this be for her voice only, or her voice and an appearance at the end or ...?

Right now I'm having trouble imagining how the enchanted objects aspect of Disney's Beauty and the Beast will work for a live action film.

I've always been enamored of the invisible servants approach myself.
