Some stories are just universally loved, no matter how old they are. It doesn’t matter if we’ve seen feature film or television adaptations of them multiple times. Because people will make them again. And, like as not, we’ll all watch them again. And again.

Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel Little Women is apparently one of those stories. Which makes sense. It’s a universal coming-of-age story that speaks to women everywhere. That’s why there have been so many versions of it made over the years.

Which is, of course, why there’s about to be another one.

The first trailer for the new BBC and PBS Masterpiece production of Little Women is here, and it’s pretty much everything that any fan of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel could ask for.

This clip shows us our first look at all four March girls – played by Maya Hawke (Jo), Willa Fitzgerald (Beth), Annes Elwy (Meg) and Kathryn Newton (Amy) – as well as footage of Emily Watson as Marmee and Dame Angela Lansbury as the cantankerous Aunt March.
