The trailer for Greta Gerwig’s Little Women is finally here, and it is a star-studded, sisterly and stunning affair.
Like Pride and Prejudice, Little Women is a story of sisters that people love to adapt.
To date, there have been six film adaptations (including a modern version released in 2018), countless TV adaptations (the most recent BBC one with Maya Hawke is particularly good), a few Broadway shows, an opera, and a Japanese animated version.
With so many adaptations — especially recent adaptations — is there really need for another version of Little Women?
Yes. The answer is always yes, it will forever be yes — we will always need to see the story of Jo, Beth, Amy and Meg in whatever format possible, in whatever way possible.
However, the fact that the most recent version of Little Women will be the sophomore effort of the talented Greta Gerwig, one that reunites Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet and features a laundry list of some of the most talented and up-and-coming actors and actresses in Hollywood today.
Check out the trailer below, and swoon at the fantastic casting and clutch your heart at the Laurie and Jo rejection scene.
The trailer highlights all the most beloved and heart-wrenching scenes Little Women fans are familiar with — Jo burning Meg’s hair, Laurie and Jo meeting for the first time, Amy in Europe, and, of course, Jo rejecting Laurie’s proposal of marriage.
However, the film also features a fresh spin on certain storylines, such as Jo’s path to publishing and writing.
“We wanted [the trailer] to feel like the movie feels, which is both classical and fresh,” Gerwig said to Entertainment Weekly in an interview. “We wanted it to feel light on its feet. And even though it does take place in the 19th century, we in no way wanted it to feel like it was something that was past. We wanted it to feel like it was present right now.”
Another thing to take note of in the Little Women is just how talented of a cast it boasts. Jo herself is played by Saoirse Ronan, while older sister Meg is played by Emma Watson, middle sister Beth is played by Eliza Scanlen and youngest sister Amy is played by Florence Pugh. Laura Dern plays Marmee, the mother to the sisters, while Meryl Streep plays the cranky, fabulously wealthy Aunt March. Rounding out the cast is Timothée Chalamet as Laurie, the next-door neighbor destined to have his heart broken by Jo.
It’s a fantastic trailer to a wonderful story, and we can’t wait to watch it opening day!
Little Women will premiere on December 25, 2019.
