OMG, you guys, Legally Blonde 3 is officially coming! Yep, that’s right, the iconic 2000s film is finally getting another movie, and we are seriously freaking out. Keep reading for everything we know.
For those who missed it, back in 2018, the original film’s star, Reese Witherspoon, confirmed via Instagram that the third movie was in the works and that she would reprise her fan-favorite role as Elle Woods. Since then, the actress has kept quiet about the entire project — until now that is.
In May 2020, Deadline first reported that Mindy Kaling and Dan Goor have officially signed on bring “an entirely new fresh spin” to the film. But not to worry, because not only does “Reese remain aboard, reprising her role as attorney Elle Woods,” but her production company, Hello Sunshine, is set to produce the film.
“Elle Woods is so iconic, proving you can be girly and smart at the same time. Bend and snap people!” Mindy wrote via Instagram at the time.
A few months later, Reese held a reunion with the original Legally Blonde. “I think [Elle] just inspired people to believe in themselves. She’s inspired me to really keep an open mind,” she said during the October 2020 event. “I think her spirit is something we could all use a little bit more of right now.”
On the film’s 20th anniversary, Reese paid tribute to her beloved alter ego, making fans even more excited for the upcoming third movie.
“Time flies when you’re busy using legal jargon in your every day life,” she joked via Instagram in July 2021. “But truly … playing Elle Woods was the role of a lifetime and I’m so honored to have been a part of sharing her story with you all. I wonder … what will Elle do next?”
And will the iconic Jennifer Coolidge be making her return to the franchise?
Reese summed it up perfectly in a 2023 interview with Entertainment Tonight: “There is no Legally Blonde 3 without Jennifer Coolidge.” Period!
