What better way to reinvent the classic tale of Little Women with a cast full of incredible actresses, and a woman director (Greta Gerwig).

Some of the biggest names in Hollywood are part of the 2019 adaptation, as well as a couple of up-and-coming ones that you should definitely keep an eye on.

The official trailer for the movie was released yesterday, with the film set to drop in the US on Christmas day.

So, although we have a fairly long time to wait until we can watch it in cinemas, its clear the hype is building to the festive season and some wholesome watching.

With that in mind, lets take a look at the cast of Little Women, and where youll have seen them before.

The Irish star is no stranger to period dramas, having got her big break as a teenager in Atonement alongside Keira Knightley and James McAvoy.

Further roles that propelled her to fame included in The Lovely Bones and Hanna, with the 25-year-old going on to win a Best Actress Golden Globe for Lady Bird two years ago.

More recently, she starred as Mary Queen of Scots in the 2018 film of the same name.

We first saw Emma as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter franchise, but shes come a long way since then.

Making her way into meatier roles, she played an LA house robber in The Bling Ring, and a dreamy teen in Perks of Being a Wallflower.

As Belle in Beauty and the Beast in 2017, she then proved that she could go from serious to fantasy with no problems.

English Florence Pugh recently wowed audiences in the Ari Aster horror flick, Midsommar. Her haunting performance was critically acclaimed, and likely burned onto the brains of everyone who watched it.

Previously, she has won awards for her portrayal as Katherine Lester in Lady Macbeth, and gained traction in John Le Carre adaptation The Little Drummer Girl on the BBC.

We expect bigger things to come for 23-year-old Florence, so keep an eye out.

Its official – the To All The Boys Ive Loved Before gang are the cutest, and the Covey Girls proved it with their own song to celebrate the third movie announcement.

As the second movie in the trilogy was revealed to be released on 12 February, fans were surprised with the announcement that the third was not only coming, but it was already being filmed.

Janel Parrish, who plays Lara-Jeans beloved big sister Margot, showed just how bonded the Covey sisters were and joined Lana Condor (Lara-Jean) and Anna Cathcart (Kitty) in a song.

Using the melody of Beach Boys classic Barbara Ann, the trio choreographed a mini routine to celebrate, roping in Peter Kavinsky himself (Noah Centineo) to film it.

As hes heard giggling behind the camera, the trio declared To All The Boys were getting a third movie…but then had to stop when they realised they didnt know (or couldnt say) when it was coming out.

Way to keep us on the hook, guys! Were already obsessed to see how this turns out.

The films, based off the books by Jenny Han, may deviate a little from the first movie after the Netflix smash hit incorporated bits of the second novel.

The book follows the fallout of that tape from the ski trip and its effects on Lara-Jean and Peters relationship.

Meanwhile, another letter receiver John Ambrose (played by Jordan Burnett) comes back into Lara-Jeans life, and rekindles his friendship with her, much to Peters annoyance.

With the trailer for the new adaptation of Little Women being released this week, fans are now patiently waiting for the classic to hit the cinema this Christmas.

The movie, based on a novel by the late author Louisa May Alcott, stars Saoirse Ronan (Jo), Emma Watson (Meg), Florence Pugh (Amy) and Eliza Scanlen (Beth) as the March sisters – and will be launched during the holiday season on 27 December, 2019.

If you cant wait until then, dont fret: this is the eighth time the popular book has been made into a movie, meaning there are plenty of other versions for you to enjoy.

There were two silent films released in 1917 and 1918, though there is no known copy of the first one, as well as one from 1933, which starred the screen legend, Katharine Hepburn.

In 1949, the fourth version was released by Merbyn LeRoy, followed by three more in recent years.

However, its the 1994 movie that stands out among all of the Little Women adaptions – but who was in it and where have you seen them before?

Jo March – Winona Ryder

Winona Ryder, 47, was already an established actress when she accepted the role of Jo March, with a break-out appearance in the cult movie Heathers in 1989, as well as Beetlejuice (1988) and Edward Scissorhands – where she was the female lead against Johnny Depp (1990).

She expertly portrays the sister who dreams of breaking free from the shackles placed upon her by society (women of that time were expected to simply marry and have babies), wanting to become a famous writer.

Since the movie came out, Winona has gone on to make even bigger films, including the psychological drama Girl, Interrupted (1999) with Hollywood star Angelina Jolie and the critically-acclaimed Black Swan (2010), which was based on the ballet, Swan Lake.

Meg March – Trini Alvarado

Trini Alvarado, 52, is among the lesser known actors in the 1994 film.

Shes appeared on stage as well as on the big screen, and her first movie was Rich Kids in 1979, when she was just 12 years old.

Since playing Meg, the timid sister who values good manners and just wants to find a nice man to settle down with, Trini has appeared as Dr Lucy Linskey in The Frighteners (1996) and Marie Alweather in Paulie (1998). Shes also done some work on TV.

Amy March – Kirsten Dunst

Amy March is the youngest sister. Shes the sassy child who dreams of being whisked off her feet by a wealthy man, but grows up to become a talented artist who eventually marries for love.

Though make no mistake, hes still rich.

The character is played by Kirsten Dunst, 37, for the majority of the movie, but she hands over the part to Samantha Mathis (who plays Amy when she gets older) towards the end.

Kirsten was just 12 years old at the time, but went on to star in hit films such as Interview With A Vampire – which was released that same year – a film in which she had to kiss a 30-year-old Brad Pitt – and Jumanji (1995).

She successfully managed to navigate her childhood fame into a glittering Hollywood career and has appeared in The Virgin Suicides (1999), the Spider-Man trilogy (2002, 2004, 2007) and Lars Von Triers Melancholia (2011), to name a few.

Beth March – Claire Danes

Beth is part of the main cast but yet always seems to linger in the background. If the trailer is any indication, the portrayal of the character will continue in much the same tone for the 2019 version.

Quiet though she may be, Beth still made a big impression on viewers (especially given how things ended for her) and actress Claire Danes made a name for herself with the part.

Two years later, she starred opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in Romeo+Juliet, the movie adaption of William Shakespeares tragic love story.

Other hit movies the 40-year-old has appeared in include The Rainmaker (1997), Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003) and Stardust (2007).

As for her current projects, shes busy playing Carrie Mathison in Homeland – a gig shes had since the show launched in 2011.
