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.
Well, good news, friends — the wait is officially over! Today we received our first proper trailer for the film and WHEW BUDDY is it star-studded:
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!

So be sure to bring ALL THE TISSUES and catch Little Women when it comes to theaters Dec. 25!
