    Get! Ready! To! Sob!

    Ever since Lady Bird writer-director Greta Gerwig announced she was doing an adaptation of Little Women, book nerds everywhere* have (impatiently) waited for a first REAL look at the film.

    “I could never love anyone as I love my sisters.” - Louisa May Alcott, @LittleWomen ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💗 From left: Meg March, Greta Gerwig (director), Jo March, Amy March, Beth March and Laurie (Theodore Laurence).

    *It's me, I'm the "book nerds everywhere."

    So — just in case you've never attended an English literature class in your life — here's a little background info: Little Women is a coming-of-age drama based on the beloved novel of the same name by Louisa May Alcott.

    The story follows the March sisters — Meg, Amy, Beth, and Jo — who are navigating life in the US in the post–Civil War era.

    Okay — with all of that formal stuff out of the way — can we just take a moment to just MARVEL AT THIS CAST, THOUGH?! Like, holy heck?!

    Saoirse Ronan! Timothée Chalamet!

    Florence Pugh! Eliza Scanlen!

    Emma Watson! Meryl Streep!

    LAURA. FREAKIN'. DERN.

    Like, I have an idea to save us all some time and money: Let's just give this movie all the awards right now.

    And naturally I wasn't the only fan losing my mind:

    CASTING 👏 SAOIRSE 👏 RONAN 👏 AS 👏 JO 👏 MARCH 👏 IN 👏 LITTLE 👏 WOMEN 👏 IS 👏 ONE 👏 OF 👏 THE 👏 BEST 👏 CASTING 👏 DECISIONS 👏 EVER 👏 SO GO AND GIVE HER AN OSCAR NOW PLEASE

    Though — truth be told — we're not emotionally prepared for this film:
