Time to get working on your "bend and snap" skills yet again because Elle Woods is headed back to the big screen. If you’re a fan of Reese Witherspoon’s Legally Blonde character we’ve got good news for you.
Although we’ve heard rumblings about it for months, Reese Witherspoon finally confirmed that Legally Blonde 3 is happening with a very Elle Woods-esque post on her Instagram page.
The short video features a shot of Witherspoon wearing a pink sequin bikini as she floats across the crystal clear blue waters of a pool, looking amazing. Eagle eye fans will notice the bikini is the same one that Elle Woods wore in her Harvard Admissions video in Legally Blonde.
The actress, who recently received rave reviews for her role on the hit HBO series Big Little Lies (which she also helped produced) confirmed the rumors by writing, “It’s true... #LegallyBlonde3.”
In the original Legally Blonde, released in 2001, Witherspoon plays Elle Woods, a sorority girl who heads to Harvard to follow her ex-boyfriend in an attempt to win him back. Of course she quickly realizes that she’s so much better than her ex and goes on to finish law school and find a new love.
The movie also released a successful sequel in 2003 titled Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde which saw Woods head to Washington to begin her political career.
It’s been 15 years since Elle Woods has graced the big screen and fans couldn’t be more excited about the news. Her Instagram post already has over 3.5 million views in just one day with fans flooding the comments section to share their excitement.
“Can't wait! Need to start practicing my bend and snap move,” wrote one. “yassssss I. CANT. WAIT” wrote another.
The first two movies were huge successes for MGM, earning a combined total of $267M. Judging by the excitement fans have after hearing a third movie was in the works, Legally Blonde 3 will be just as successful.
While this is definitely amazing news, we’re going to have to wait a little while before the movie hits theatres. According to Deadline, the movie will open on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2020. Plenty of time to perfect your bend and snap.
