We all remember Legally Blonde and how it was a major part of the early 2000’s. Everyone fell in love with Elle Woods, played by Reese Witherspoon, and the film made over $141 million in box office sales worldwide. This of course meant that fans wanted more and prompted a second film.
As its popularity soared after the sequel, Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde, the franchise is all set to return to the big screen with the third part, 15 years later. Legally Blonde 3 is officially in the works!
While rumours were abuzz about whether there would actually be a third film or not, Reese Witherspoon took to Instagram to make the announcement in June 2018. "It’s true... #LegallyBlonde3,” she said while posting a short video of herself in Elle's sequined hot pink bikini, leisurely sunbathing on a pool float.
At the recent season 2 premiere for Big Little Lies in New York, Whiterspoon was asked about her iconic Legally Blonde and if there were any details she could reveal about the third movie, to which she said, "[We have] a script, but we haven't shot anything," the actress said while speaking with Entertainment Tonight. "[Elle's] a very beloved character. You just want her to go on a hero's journey like she does in the first movie, and I'm having a great time working on it."
For the third film, the original writers and producers are also back! Original producers Marc Platt and Adam Siegel, President of Platt Productions, will work on the film. Reese Whiterspoon is also going to be producing the film with her production company, Hello Sunshine. The third Legally Blonde film is slated for release on February 14, 2020!
