Saoirse Ronan, Timothée Chalamet’s ‘Little Women’ gaze has Twitter fanning itself

“Little Women” has been revealed and the period drama is burning up Twitter.

Director Greta Gerwig’s take on Louisa May Alcott’s classic tale and its new cast are featured in Vanity Fair — featuring Gerwig’s “Lady Bird” star Saoirse Ronan as main heroine Jo, Emma Watson as Meg, Florence Pugh as Amy, and Eliza Scanlen as Beth.

Laura Dern stars as Marmee and Meryl Streep plays the sisters’ forbidding, rich Aunt March.

Of course, there’s also the smoldering reunion of Ronan with her “Lady Bird” co-star Timothée Chalamet. He stars as Laurie, Jo’s best friend and closest confidant.

Laurie is the literal boy next door who develops an “intense friendship” with Jo. Don’t get too excited, people, their characters’ friendship never becomes romantic, despite Laurie’s marriage proposal. But the proposal is denied, a twist on what took place when Chalamet played boyfriend Kyle Scheible in “Lady Bird.”

“I loved that in ‘Lady Bird,’ (Chalamet) was the one that broke my heart, but I got to break his heart in ‘Little Women,’ ” Ronan told Vanity Fair.

Here’s the full Instagram gallery.

Don’t expect a period piece with these characters, despite the frocks.

“They were just people. They were not in a period piece, they were just living,” Gerwig said. “They were the most modern people who had ever existed, up till that point.”

“Little Women” hits theaters Dec. 25.
