Brace Yourselves: Saoirse Ronan Will Give You Chills in the First ‘Little Women’ Trailer

Cancel your afternoon meetings and break out your headphones, because the first Little Women trailer is here…and it's taking everything in our power not to rewatch the preview 1,000 more times.

From Lady Bird's Greta Gerwig, Little Women is another adaptation of the 1868 novel by Louisa May Alcott. The film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh and Eliza Scanlen as the four March sisters, with Laura Dern as Marmee and Meryl Streep as the sisters' tough Aunt March (with Downton Abbey's Dowager Countess–level burns that we're sure we'll be obsessed with when the movie debuts).

Yep, it's a production fit for the ages, with the A-list stars of Big Little Lies, Harry Potter, Midsommar, Sharp Objects and Lady Bird (among myriad other blockbuster titles) coming together for Gerwig's masterpiece.

But what gets our heart beating faster than Timothée Chalamet (and the sparks that fly between his boy-next-door character, Laurie, and Ronan's Jo March) is the powerful and moving speech Jo delivers toward the end of the two-minute long trailer.

“Women, they have minds and they have souls as well as just hearts,” Jo (Ronan) says in the trailer. “And they’ve got ambition and they’ve got talent as well as just beauty. And I’m so sick of people saying that love is just all a woman is fit for. I'm so sick of it!”

Little Women hits theaters on December 25. (So, yeah, that's all we want for Christmas, obvi.)
