Where one Emma goes, another Emma is always sure to follow.
Watson, who is probably best known for her role as Hermione Granger in the massively popular Harry Potter franchise, was last seen opposite Tom Hanks in The Circle in 2017.
According to IMDb, she will be taking on the role of Meg March, the oldest and most responsible March sister. As of now, Ronan is set to play headstrong Jo March, Pugh the vain and short-tempered Amy March, and Sharp Objects’ Eliza Scanlen the virtuous-to-death Beth March.
Chalamet will (obviously) play dreamy boy next door Laurie Laurence, and Streep is attached to play wealthy, crotchety Aunt March.
The point here, of course, is not that all Emmas are interchangeable. But something tells us that Little Women’s core base will be just fine with Watson appearing in the movie. For now, all there is to do is fan cast away to your heart’s content (hey, Laura Dern’s role is still listed only as “rumoured” on IMDb) until the film premieres on Christmas Day 2019.
