Little Women trailer: first look at Greta Gerwig's starry adaptation

Meryl Streep stars as Aunt March, with Saoirse Ronan as Jo, Florence Pugh as Amy, Eliza Scanlen as Beth, and Emma Watson as Meg.

"Women, they have minds, and they have souls, as well as just hearts", Ronan's Jo says in the trailer. But low and behold, this movie actually looks fun!

"Just because my dreams are different than yours, it doesn't mean they're unimportant", Watson's Meg tells Jo. It makes it feel like this setting is modern to these characters, so rather than feeling like stodgy relics or distant ancestors, their lives and concerns become immediate. 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.

As old-fashioned a tale as Little Women is, there's something wonderfully timeless about the four strong-willed sisters who only have each other at the height of wartorn America.

Little Women opens on December 25. The two co-starred in her 2017 hit "Lady Bird", which was nominated for "Best Picture" and "Best Original Screenplay", "Best Actress" (Ronan) and "Best Supporting Actress" and "Best Director" (Gerwig) at the Academy Awards that year.

The first trailer for Greta Gerwig's "Little Women" hit the internet Tuesday at noon, giving audiences their first look at the star-studded project, which spent months filming in MA previous year.
