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

To play Jo’s elegant sister Meg, Gerwig turned to Emma Watson. “To me, [Watson] embodies everything that I was interested in, in terms of who the March women were,” Gerwig says. “She’s just smart. She’s on multi-governmental organizations that speak to the U.N., and she’s so thoughtful and present. She is way out there trying to do everything she can.”

Watson, an outspoken activist for gender equality, is best known for playing a witch and a princess who refuse to be limited by systemic oppression or social expectations — but here, she is not the obviously feisty Jo, but her much more outwardly conventional sister. “For me personally, Meg March is a character that is long misunderstood,” Gerwig says. “In terms of what [Watson] did with the character, she has so much open-heartedness and so much love combined with that much intelligence, it’s heartbreaking and potent. Because she’s absolutely herself with understanding the struggle of who that character is.”

The actress (and noted feminist book clubber) “would always bring so much to the conversation” from her extensive reading and research, Gerwig says. “She is all-in, not just as an actor, but as a mind.”

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.”

Ronan’s introduction to Little Women was the Winona Ryder film, which came out in 1994, the year she was born. She grew up an only child, so for her, filming Little Women gave her a special opportunity: “I got to have sisters.” Florence Pugh, Emma Watson, and Eliza Scanlen play the sisters; Laura Dern is Marmee, and Meryl Streep plays their forbidding, rich Aunt March.

Gerwig shot on location in the book’s Massachusetts setting, where Alcott and her three sisters grew up. The director researched locations that the family could have inhabited, and in some cases, ones they really did—like the schoolhouse where Alcott’s firebrand father, Bronson, taught. “It gives gravity to what you’re doing,” Ronan says. “The physical place really reminds you of the story you’re trying to tell.” Gerwig also relied on paintings from the era, to give the film a vividness that the black-and-white and sepia portraits of the era couldn’t accomplish. An 1870 painting by Winslow Homer called High Tide created the texture for the beach scene; costume designer Jacqueline Durran modeled Jo’s look after a figure in the work.

Hello everyone! We finally have a new look on our lovely fansite! It was designed by our friend Nicole, from NWL9 Design, using photos from two sessions Neide and I are very fond of – this one and this one. We hope you like all of it as much as we do!

In 2019, the main project of Emma’s we are looking forward to is the new book adaptation of “Little Women”, directed by Greta Gerwig and featuring the likes of Saoirse Ronan, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, Meryl Streep, Laura Dern and Timothee Chalamet. Filming was wrapped up in 2018, and the release date is currently set for Christmas 2019.

The book is considered a classic, and has been adapted to film many times before. If you haven’t read it, our partner fansite saoirse-ronan.com is currently doing a giveaway of a very pretty physical copy, and you can join it by retweeting the tweet below. Good luck!
