Watch the first trailer for Greta Gerwig’s Little Women

Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Timothée Chalamet, and Laura Dern star in the eighth cinema adaptation

The first trailer for Greta Gerwig’s much-anticipated adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s novel, Little Women is finally here.

Set for release this December, the film is the eighth cinema adaption of the classic 19th century book about four young women coming of age in the aftermath of the American Civil War, all on their own very different path to womanhood – Lady Bird 1868 anyone? 

The movies sees Gerwig reunite her Lady Bird cast members Saoirse Ronan (who plays female expectations-defying young writer Jo) and Timothée Chalamet (Laurie AKA boy next door) and Tracey Letts (who is a publisher). Joining Ronan and Chalabae is Emma Watson as Meg, Florence Pugh as Amy and Eliza Scanien as Beth. Laura Dern (aka. Diane in Twin Peaks) stars as their mum, Marmee, while Meryl Streep is the wealthy Aunt March. 

The roles of Jo and Laurie were famously played by Winona Ryder and Christian Bale in the 1994 Gillian Armstrong adaptation of the novel, also starring Claire Danes, Trini Alvarado, Kirsten Dunst, and an all-female production team.
