The first trailer for Great Gerwig’s (Lady Bird) highly anticipated adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women is finally here.
A star-studded cast takes on the classic story, including sure-to-be-stellar performances from Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh and Eliza Scanlen as the March sisters, as well as appearances from Timothée Chalamet, Laura Dern and Meryl Streep.
The trailer’s YouTube description summarizes:
Writer-director Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) has crafted a Little Women that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March sisters—four young women each determined to live life on her own terms—is both timeless and timely. Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth March, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, with Timothée Chalamet as their neighbor Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt March.
We look forward to meeting Meg, Amy, Beth and Jo in Gerwig’s take on Little Women come Dec. 25, 2019.
