Judging by the trailer, it will be be a gorgeous and sparkling gem of a film, full of the heart and fire that has made the book beloved by readers.

The upcoming film adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's classic 1868 novel features some real star power, including Saoirse Ronan, Timothée Chalamet, Emma Watson, Meryl Streep, and Laura Dern.

The synopses reads: "Gerwig 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". But despite the absence of their father (Bob Odenkirk), a pastor who is being employed miles away from home, the March sisters and their mother Marmee are still able to enjoy the little things in life, like flying kites and putting on costume plays in their attic.

Little Women opens on December 25.

Little Women hits New Zealand cinemas on January 2, 2020. One is a busy city, with Jo wearing more formal clothes. "And they've got ambition, and they've got talent, as well as just beauty. I'm so sick of people saying that love is just all a woman is fit for, I'm so sick of it!"

Ronan, who is taking the helm as Jo, is the undoubted lead and lives up to the character's illustrious history in both literature and film. Chalamet worked with Saoirse Ronan and Greta Gerwig in Lady Bird, so clearly the trio has good working chemistry.

Sony Pictures has set Little Women for a Christmas release, the tail end of Oscar season.
