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

"We wanted it to feel like the movie feels which is both classical and fresh.- writer director Greta Gerwig

The first look at Greta Gerwig's latest adaptation of Little Women is finally here.

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".

Meryl Streep plays Aunt March, Laura Dern is Marmee, mother to the March Girls, while Meg, Amy and Beth are brought to life by familiar faces Emma Thompson, Florence Pugh and Eliza Scanlen.

The full trailer for Little Women was released on Tuesday. The cast also includes Bob Odenkirk, Chris Cooper and James Norton. Jo wants to be a writer, and is frustrated with how women are pushed to the side and deemed powerless- especially if they don't marry.

"Women, they have minds, and they have souls, as well as just hearts", Jo says in the trailer.

Back in December 2018, Emma shared the sweetest photo of her Little Women cast members and director. "And I'm so sick of people saying that love is just all a woman is fit for". In addition, Timothée Chalamet takes on the role of Theodore "Laurie" Laurence. Ronan and Chalamet are close friends and experienced colleagues after working the 2018 awards circuit together for Ladybird.

Jo has previously been played by Katharine Hepburn in 1933, and Winona Ryder in 1994.

Christmas has come early for fans of the March family, whose travails are chronicled in the Civil War-set coming of age story Little Women.
