Fans of Elle Woods and the Legally Blonde films rejoice! The charming blonde lawyer is all set to head back to the courtroom. MGM Studios have confirmed that the third installment of Legally Blonde is officially in the works, entertainment portal, E News reported.
“Elle Woods is back!” the tweet said. “Legally Blonde 3, coming May 2022. We rest our case,” it also tweeted. After hearing the news, fans are over the moon, even if it is 20 years after the pink-obsessed Harvard grad lawyer won our hearts. The announcement came on the same day as the iconic cast’s nostalgic reunion. Reese Witherspoon, Luke Wilson, Selma Blair, Jennifer Coolidge, Ali Larter, Holland Taylor and more stars hopped on a Zoom call to recreate the forever useful “Bend and Snap” combination and discuss the legacy of the early ‘00s film.
“Of all the films that I’ve made, there is one that comes up more than any other and that is Legally Blonde,” Reese Witherspoon who plays the iconic character of Elle Woods said during the reunion. “And I think that’s because of Elle Woods. I think she just inspired people to believe in themselves. She just has a true sense of herself and always wants to see the best in others.”
The actor added that her fearless character “inspired her to always keep an open mind and be an advocate for myself and for other people in this world.” Just like the cast, we too agree that the film was equipped with an incredibly talented cast and script to make it a cult classic. “Everyone from the actor to the UPS guy delivering a package, everyone was so perfect,” Blair noted.
Jessica Cauffiel noted, “The stars were aligned so perfectly. Reese, you really were the guiding light and elevated us to place a focus, dedication and seriousness and commitment.”
We’re already so excited for this to hit our screens!
