Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel Little Women gets another cinematic outing, this time at the hands of Lady Bird director Greta Gerwig.

The cast for the tale of four sisters coming of age in America in the aftermath of the Civil War is pretty top notch, too.

Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen portray, respectively, Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth March. Meanwhile, Timothee Chalamet is their neighbour Laurie, Laura Dern is Marmee, and Meryl Streep takes on the role of Aunt March.

Little Women is set to open in Australian cinemas on Janaury 1, 2020.
