However, they aren't the only celebrities in the cast. Meryl Streep portrays Aunt March, and Laura Dern plays Marmee March. In addition, Timothe Chalamet takes on the role of Theodore "Laurie" Laurence.
The film is directed by Greta Gerwig, and it looks like she has a personal connection to the Louisa May Alcott tale, too.
"I always knew who Jo March was," she told Vanity Fair earlier this summer. "She was the person I wanted to be."
In fact, the filmmaker told the magazine the story feels like "autobiography."
"When you live through a book, it almost becomes the landscape of your inner life.... It becomes part of you, in a profound way," she said.
The story has hit the big screen before, including in 1933 and 1994. As for Gerwig's version, the studio describes it as both "timeless and timely."
The movie hits theaters this Christmas.
