Oh my God. Elle Woods is baaaaack!
The pink-loving protagonist in the hit movie Legally blonde is proving once again that blondes really have more fun with the third installment of the comedy.
We don't have an exact launch date yet (bummer, I know) but according to Deadline, Mindy Kaling will team up with Brooklyn Nine-Nine creator Dan Goor to write the script so we're sure it'll be worth the wait. The Kaling-Witherspoon duo also appeared together in A Wrinkle In Time, and Witherspoon made a brief appearance on an episode of The Mindy Project back in 2017.
The news that Legally Blonde 3 is coming is super exciting, but it's not a total surprise. In 2018, Reese Witherspoon (who plays Elle Woods) shared on Instagram that Legally Blonde 3 was happening—we just didn't know when. "It's true... #LegallyBlonde3," she captioned.
If you remember, Legally Blonde hit theaters in 2001 and was almost an instant success. It grossed more than $141 million worldwide through box office sales—which BTW was amazing for that time. And then, in 2003, the sequel, Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde hit the scene.
We're thrilled to have the sweet, thoughtful and confidently persistent lady back in our lives, and we're dying to see her new fancy outfits and killer hairstyles. Maybe 2020 will be awesome after all. Time to bend and snap!
