Greta Gerwig’s ‘Little Women:’ See Saoirse Ronan, Meryl Streep and Emma Watson in First Trailer (Video)The cast that director Greta Gerwig has assembled for her take on “Little Women” makes it look like the Avengers of 18th-century novel adaptations.

Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh and Eliza Scanlen star as the March sisters Jo, Meg, Amy and Beth, respectively, and that young cast is joined by Laura Dern as their mother Marmee March, Meryl Streep as their Aunt March and Timothée Chalamet as the charming love interest Laurie.

On Tuesday, we finally get to see them all together as Sony has released the colorful and lush first trailer for the awards hopeful drama that’s set to open in theaters on Christmas of this year.

“Little Women” follows the four teenage sisters and their mother during Civil War-era Massachusetts as it charts their coming of age from childhood to womanhood, navigating a new home, true love and their first holiday without their pastor father.

While the film is still set in the Civil War era, Gerwig has made important updates from the already numerous film adaptations of Louisa May Alcott’s beloved 1868 American novel. Namely, Gerwig’s script incorporates details from Alcott’s personal letters and diaries that help to explore more modern ideas about gender and sexuality that the novel only hints at, specifically in the portrayal of Ronan and Chalamet’s characters.

“They find each other before they’ve committed to a gender,” Gerwig told Vanity Fair in June. “It wouldn’t be wrong to call Saoirse handsome and Timothée beautiful. Both have a slightly androgynous quality that makes them perfect for these characters.”

The two are reuniting after making sparks in Gerwig’s directorial debut “Lady Bird,” and Ronan explained how she loved turning the tables on their relationship this time around.

“I loved that in ‘Lady Bird,’ he was the one that broke my heart, but I got to break his heart in ‘Little Women,'” Ronan told Vanity Fair.

The staggering cast for “Little Women” also includes Bob Odenkirk, Chris Cooper, James Norton, Louis Garrel and Abby Quinn. Watch the first trailer for the film above.
