Get ready for it: after 15 years of waiting, Legally Blonde 3 is happening! Yep, Reese Witherspoon (a.k.a. Elle Woods) is reprising her epically adorable role and we. Can’t. Wait. Here’s what we know so far about the third installment of the Legally Blonde franchise.
With rumors swirling, Witherspoon recently tweeted and IG’d a cute confirmation of what we’ve been hoping for—Elle is back! Paying homage to Woods’ Harvard Law admissions video, Witherspoon posted a video clip of herself floating through the backyard blue water in a pink bikini, with the caption, “It’s true…#LegallyBlonde3.”
In 2011, Witherspoon brought sorority sister-turned-Harvard Law student Elle Woods to life on the big screen. That’s when we fell in love with her pretty-in-hot-pink fashion sense, super-smarts and seriously sassy ways. Two years later Witherspoon reprised the role, bringing us Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde. And then it ended. We were left with watching Witherspoon’s Woods on the small screen of our TVs, laptops, tablets and smartphones. That is, until now.
Even though Witherspoon’s tweet confirmed Elle’s return to the big screen, we’ve still yet to get any details beyond that Legally Blonde 3 is happening and Witherspoon is on board. That means we’ll all have to keep on waiting to find out where Elle’s story picks up and when we’ll finally get to see our favorite fashionista attorney again!
