Legally Blonde 3 is Happening & Here’s Everything We Know About It
We don’t really need a reason to soak in the adorable wonder that Reese Witherspoon is, but thankfully, the universe has given us several, especially the legendary chick-flick Legally Blonde (2001) which was soon followed by Legally Blonde 2 after it made over $141 million in box office sales across the globe. It’s no surprise that after two whopping, hilarious, brilliant successes, fans were waiting with bated breath for a third movie. Well, right when that dream started looking very hazy, the franchise decided to return to the big screen with yet another release and here’s the latest scoop on the deets of Legally Blonde 3!
It’s official – with a release date and everything!
Back in 2018, Reese Witherspoon took to Twitter by uploading a picture of her floating in a pool donning Elle Woods’ signature pink sequin bikini with the caption “It’s true… #LegallyBlonde3”. This had fans expecting the release in early 2020. The wait turned out to be a long one owing to the pandemic-induced hiatus. Legally Blonde 3, however, is set to hit the big screen on May 20, 2022, as confirmed by the original cast. Elle Woods, it’s a date!
OG Producers + one Reese Witherspoon herself
The original producers of the films – Marc Platt and Adam Siegel are set to produce the film along with Reese Witherspoon herself and her production company – Hello Sunshine.
Mindy Kaling is writing it! WHAAAAT!
As reported by Deadline, Mindy Kaling has teamed up with the creator of the much-loved series Brooklyn Nine-Nine – Dan Goor – to craft the script of the threequel. Mindy says, in collaboration with Goor, that they’ve loved working on it and that it was as exciting as it was a challenge.
Nope, no news on the other cast members
In an interview with Luke Wilson who played Elle’s lawyer husband, he said he’d be totally down to be a part of film no. 3, but unfortunately hasn’t confirmed the news. Please, universe, make Jennifer Coolidge return as Paulette!
New movie, same spirit!
Oh, we love Elle Woods’ wardrobe, but her feminist values and undying spirit gives us life! Lucky for us, the third instalment, too, will relay messages of female empowerment. When asked by Hollywood Reporter what the third movie will entail, Reese said “so much fun. So full of fashion. So full of awesome feminist ideas. It will be global. It will have animals. It will have returning cast members”.
We don’t know about you, but it sounds like ‘I absolutely cannot wait, eeeeep!’ to us!
