Official Trailer for the Movie Adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's Classic Novel 'Little Women'

Louisa May Alcott's classic novel 'Little Women' had been adapted for the big screen for quite a good number of times already. Seven times to be exact. The novel's earliest movie adaptation dates back to 1917 in an era wherein silent films were still the norm. This coming December, another adaptation of the 1868 novel will roll into theaters.

Directed by Greta Gerwig, 'Little Women' 2019 will feature an ensemble cast which includes Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, Laura Dern, Meryl Streep, Bob Odenkirk, and Chris Cooper.  The film has been in development by Sony Pictures since 2013. Production and filming only started in 2018 when Greta Gerwig was brought in as director.

Watch the first trailer for the film below:
