Legally Blonde 3: The hit show starring Elle Woods to return in 2022

If we had to make a list of all the movies that caused a cultural reset for a generation of viewers, Legally Blonde would definitely make it to the top 10. Legally Blonde can easily be attributed to introducing Reese Witherspoon, and she alters ego Elle Woods to the world and lives of many a fan. What if we told you that this beloved classic is coming back to screens very soon? Yes, you read that, right! Legally Blonde 3 will grace the big screens before you know it!

Legally Blonde 3: who is involved? 

Now, it goes without saying that it would be a massive shock and let down if Reese Witherspoon does not return to play Elle in Legally Blonde 3. Not wanting to put us through this misfortune, it has been collectively decided that she will indeed be reprising her role. We also know that many of the original cast members, including Jennifer Coolidge, played the iconic role of Paulette Bonafonté. Some other cast members include Selma Blair as Vivian Kensington, Jessica Cauffiel as Margot, Matthew Davis as Warner Huntington III, Ali Larter as Brooke Taylor Windham, Holland Taylor as Professor Stromwell, Alanna Ubach as Serena McGuire, and Luke Wilson as Emmett Richmond.

The original producers are back with Legally Blonde 3, with the film being directed by Jamie Suk. One exciting point to note here is that Mindy Kaling will be collaborating with Dan Goor – famous for Brooklyn Nine-Nine – to get the script down. Looking at this stellar cast and crew, it would be fair to say that expectations are already soaring.

What will the plot be, and when do we get to watch it?

As for the plot of Legally Blonde 3, the makers have decided to keep us guessing – a very smart choice at this early an hour. The movie, as we all know, will follow Elle Wood’s next adventure in the cut-throat legal world and the hilarious turn of events that follow her determination to make somehow it work. Gauging from the direction the first two movies took, we can somehow try and figure out the kind of arc the film will come up with. However, Reese Witherspoon confirmed in a tweet that the movie would focus on many feminist ideas, and if we know one thing about Mindy Kaling, she doesn’t shy away from making a statement.

The initial release date for the movie was pushed way back due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The latest date of the premiere has been set for the 20th of May 2022. Although this is a considerable buffer period between news of production and actual release itself, we are sure that watching Elle do her thing on the big screens again will be worth it.

Knowing that 2022 already has a great film like Legally Blonde 3 in store for us is motivation enough to make it through 2020 twice over. With promises of more stunning fashion, iconic moments, and witty humor – Legally Blonde is something to look forward to!
