It’s time again to brush up on that bend and snap!
Yes, that’s right, Reese Witherspoon and MGM have confirmed that the third installment of Legally Blonde is, like, officially happening, with the Elle Woods coming back to the big screen on Valentine’s Day, 2020.
The much-awaited pic for gals and guys alike is coming together quickly with both Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith and Karen McCullah (the same scribes who helped transition the Amanda Brown novel from paper to screen almost eighteen years ago for the first film in 2001) coming back yet again to write the franchise's latest script. Original Platt Productions producers Marc Platt and Adam Siegel are also (again) taking on producing roles.

What’s even more divine is that this time around, Wonder Woman Witherspoon herself will also be proudly tackling sound, stage, and production with the helping hand of her Hello Sunshine media company. The company anchors itself “in storytelling, creating and discovering content that celebrates women and puts them at the center of the story.”
“It’s true… #LegallyBlonde3,” Witherspoon, 42, shared on Instagram on Thursday, paying homage to a scene in the first film. She was sunbathing on a blue pool raft while perfectly clad in an Elle Wood’s signature staple outfit – a superbly sparkly and beautifully bedazzled pink bikini.
As of right now, details of the new film's plot remain under wraps, but Deadline has reported that "...it will be much in the spirit of the first film."
Given the fact that 2020 is the year of the next American presidential election, it just might be in the stars for Elle to finally set both perfectly pedicured feet into the White House. And keeping in mind Legally Blonde 2’s poignant political arc, it wouldn’t be too big of a surprise at all.
For now though, let’s just say we’ll be counting down the days and playing Hoku’s Perfect Day on full repeat until we meet up with Elle again.
