Fans Have A Lot Of Thoughts About Emma Watson's Accent In The 'Little Women' Trailer
The 'Little Women' trailer is finally here and there's a LOT to unpack.
The first peek tells us that Timothée Chalamet still has breathtaking hair, Saoirse Ronan was BORN to play the rebellious Jo March and that, obviously, Meryl Streep nails the role of a wealthy spinster aunt.
But there's one element that has raised eyebrows among fans -- Emma Watson's startling American accent.
The film is based on Louisa May Alcott's classic novel 'Little Women' and is set in Massachusetts sometime in the early 1860s, during the Civil War, so the actors have all adopted a sort of old-timey American way of speaking.
But as Emma utters the phrase "just because my dreams are different to yours, doesn't mean that they're unimportant" in the new trailer, fans have recoiled a little at the garbled accent.
Perhaps it's because Emma played the very British Hermione Granger in the 'Harry Potter' franchise for so many years that we're just not ready to hear her with another voice -- although none of her castmates are American, either.
Saoirse Ronan was born in the US to Irish parents and then raised in Dublin from the age of 3, Florence Pugh is British and Eliza Scanlen is Australian.
Look, maybe it was just that one line and Emma will really find her American voice in the rest of the film. Either way, fans are still pretty chuffed on her incredible wardrobe.
The film, directed by Greta Gerwig, is set to hit cinemas at the end of 2019.
