WATCH: Timothée Chalamet And Saoirse Ronan In The First Trailer For Greta Gerwig's Little Women

Is it December yet?

And the Oscar goes to...

Gather your hooped skirts and too-small silk slippers because the first trailer for Little Women is finally here.

The film, much like the book and the Winona Ryder starring movie from the mid-90s, follows the lives of the March sisters - four sisters living in 19th century New England - as they prepare to fly the nest and grow up in a society that expects them to live as caregivers in subservience to their husbands.

Of course, Gerwig’s version is rumoured to up the ante a bit, and hone in on the ‘men are trash and we don’t need them’ mantra that movies both past and present need to hear more of.

This isn't so much a movie as it is an event. Directed by Greta Gerwig, and starring Emma Watson (Meg March), Saoirse Ronan (Jo March), Eliza Scanlen (Beth March), Florence Pugh (Amy March), Timothée Chalamet (Theodore "Laurie" Laurence), Laura Dern (Marmie March), and Meryl Streep (Aunt March), it's basically fanfiction come to life. In other words, expectations are high, and thankfully, the trailer doesn't disappoint.

The film opens in the US on Christmas Day and in the UK and Ireland on December 26.
