The trailer for Greta Gerwig’s “Little Women” is here.
Set to come out at Christmas time this year, the movie stars Saoirse Ronan as Jo, Emma Watson as Meg, Florence Pugh as Amy and Eliza Scanlen as Beth.
Based on the legendary novel by Louisa May Alcott, the film also stars Timothée Chalamet as Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee and Meryl Streep as Aunt March.
The novel was first released in 1868 and tells the story of Alcott in the form of her alter ego, Jo, as she reminisces on her own life with her sisters as they try to forge paths of their own.
Gerwig scripted and directed this retelling — the first big-screen adaptation of Alcott’s tale since the 1994 version starring Winona Ryder and Christian Bale.
Ronan and Chalamet are no strangers to Gerwig. The two co-starred in her 2017 hit “Lady Bird,” which was nominated for “Best Picture” and “Best Original Screenplay,” “Best Actress” (Ronan) and “Best Supporting Actress” and “Best Director” (Gerwig) at the Academy Awards that year.
Fans will also recognize Dern and Streep together — they recently co-starred in the second season of HBO’s “Big Little Lies.”
Plans for the film were originally announced in June of 2018. Watson joined the cast in August of that year.
The film is still unrated — but it’s set to hit theaters of December 25.
