It has been released the first theatrical trailer for Greta Gerwig’s adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s novel Little Women, which stars Saoirse Ronan, Florence Pugh, Timothée Chalamet and Emma Watson. In case you might have missed it, Saoirse plays Jo March – the second-eldest of the March sisters. Director Greta Gerwig’s spoke briefly with Entertainment Weekly in honor of the trailer release, about casting Saoirse for the role of Jo. The trailer and the piece of article can be found below. Little Women is set to be released in theaters on December 25, 2019.

For her tomboyish heroine Jo and romantic hero Laurie, Gerwig reteamed with her Lady Bird stars Saoirse Ronan and Timothée Chalamet (both of whom appear, by the looks of the trailer, to have been born for these iconic roles). “I just adore them. They are just spectacular as live actors, and there is some true pairing between them that feels like [it’s] in the tradition of great cinematic pairing,” the filmmaker tells EW and PEOPLE. “I don’t know what they do — I mean, it’s magic. I direct them, but it’s all there.”

Greta Gerwig doesn’t remember reading Little Women for the first time. “It must have been read to me,” she says when I ask for her earliest memories of author Louisa May Alcott’s classic tale of four girls imagining a world beyond their humble surroundings outside Civil War–era Boston.“I always knew who Jo March was,” Gerwig continues. “She was the person I wanted to be.”

In that, Gerwig has had plenty of company. Little Women is one of the most popular books in the history of American letters; after the first volume sold out its initial run of 2,000 copies in 1868, the novel has never been out of print. Simone de Beauvoir, born in 1908, pretended as a child that she was Jo—Alcott’s protagonist and stand-in, a determined, stubborn tomboy with a flair for writing. Ursula Le Guin says that Alcott’s Jo made writing as a girl feel possible. In film, Katharine Hepburn played Jo in 1933; Winona Ryder, in 1994. Now, Gerwig has created her own Jo for the screen in Saoirse Ronan, who also starred in Gerwig’s debut as a solo director, 2017’s Oscar-nominated Lady Bird.

Gerwig based that film on her own life, and Ronan’s character on herself. Still, Little Women might be even more personal to the director. (Her agent pointed this out to her, Gerwig tells me.) “This feels like autobiography,” Gerwig says. “When you live through a book, it almost becomes the landscape of your inner life. … It becomes part of you, in a profound way.”
