The First Picture Of The 'Little Women' Cast Starring Emma Watson Is Here
If you're one of the many fans who's been waiting with baited breath to see the next-generation cast of the Little Women movie do their thing, you're in for a treat.
The pictured cast of the film, which is set to premier around Christmas 2019, are as follows from left to right: Emma Watson (Meg), Greta Gerwig (director), Saoirse Ronan (Jo), Florence Pugh (Amy), Eliza Scanlen (Beth), and Timothée Chalamet (Laurie).
One fan commented: "Well, I can't wait any longer !!!!!!!"
While another said: "omgg yassss yassss yassssss waiting for it omg"
The post, the first for the movie's official Instagram account, reached over 16,000 likes and 662 comments in a day. Proof, if needed, that with a year still to go until the film's release the hype is already building.
If you skipped reading the book for your English Lit class: shame on you. But here's the story in a nutshell. The original story of the 1869 book by Louisa May Alcott follows the four March sisters as they grow up and make the transition from childhood to womanhood.
The 1994 adaptation starring Claire Danes, Kirsten Dunst, Winona Ryder and Trini Alvarado is still a cult favourite when you want to feel warm and fuzzy.
Director Greta Gerwig, who is perhaps best known for directing coming-of-age movie Lady Bird staring Saoirse and Timothée.
Meryl Streep and Laura Dern will also star as Aunt March and Marmee March respectively but the roles actors Bob Odenkirk and Chris Cooper will play have not yet been confirmed and unfortunately they didn't make the cut for the Instagram picture.
