Sony Pictures has released the first Little Women trailer. 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. In this new version, Emma Watson plays Meg March, Saoirse Ronan plays Jo March, Florence Pugh (Midsommar) plays Amy March, Eliza Scanlen (Sharp Objects) plays Beth March, and Timothee Chalamet plays Theodore Laurence. The trailer has been hotly-anticipated among fans of the book and the nearly equally beloved 1994 movie.

"Just because my dreams are different than yours, it doesn't mean they're unimportant", Watson's Meg tells Jo. However, rather than coming off as discordant or ahistorical, the approach works. Instead, Gerwig has clearly found her own take on the material, and I can't wait to see how it all shakes out when it arrives in theaters on Christmas. Little Women has seen many an adaptation, but few as packed with talent as Gerwig's upcoming feature film, which reunites the Oscar-nominated director with her Lady Bird stars Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet.

As all fans know, though, what ensues in Little Women is far from a formulaic marriage plot. It is due for release in the United Kingdom and Ireland on December 26 after the film's Christmas Day release in the US. But the idea of Lady Bird's Greta Gerwig infusing her style, sense and sensibility into it, and gathering a quality cast of young actors, is certainly appealing.
