Based on the novel by Louisa May Alcott, the tale follows the March sisters; set during the Civil War-era America, this will not be the first time the tale has been adapted for film and television.

Further details are pretty sparse at the moment as everything about Little Woman is still in the early stages; no doubt once all the finer details have been worked out announcements will start to be made. Either way, for Harry Potter fans, this news alone is great to have.
