There’s no way we can deny that Legally Blonde and Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde dominated the early 2000s. When Legally Blonde first aired in 2001, people fell in love with Reese Witherspoon as Elle Woods. It made a whopping 141 million dollars in the box office worldwide. Neither less to say it was a massive success, and so was Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde.
After literally years of waiting, the fans finally got what they were anticipating.
Witherspoon took to Instagram to announce that, yes, Legally Blonde 3 is officially happening. To make the announcement, the actress posted a short video of herself in Elle’s sequined hot pink bikini, leisurely sunbathing on a pool float. “It’s true… #LegallyBlonde3,” she captioned the post.
What Is Legally Blonde 3 About?
There haven’t been many reveals yet, but one of the most significant announcements was that Mindy Kaling is writing the script!
Deadline reported that Kaling would team up with Brooklyn Nine-Nine creator Dan Goor to pen the Legally Blonde three script. The pair last collaborated on a Kaling/Priyanka Chopra wedding comedy, which is in the works at Universal. Witherspoon also co-starred with Kaling in Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time in 2018. Kaling and Goor’s script is said to be “an entirely new fresh spin” from a previous version of the screenplay.
Talking about what the movie will be about,
The third movie will be “full of awesome feminist ideas.”
During an interview for The Hollywood Reporter, Witherspoon was asked to fill in the blank: “Legally Blonde 3 will be…” She said the new movie would be, “So much fun. So full of fashion. So full of awesome feminist ideas. It will be global. It will have animals. It will have to return cast members. We just need to film it first. But that’s my hope and dream for Legally Blonde 3.” And as for Elle’s best friend Paulette? Witherspoon confirmed, “It will be the return of Jennifer Coolidge, which is the greatest.” We love ourselves a good feminist movie, don’t we?
