Reese Witherspoon, the iconic Elle Woods from the “Legally Blonde” series, confirmed in 2018 that a third installment is in the works. Mindy Kaling, co-writing with Dan Goor, is behind the script. The film’s original release date of May 2022 has been postponed due to ongoing strikes within the Writers Guild and SAG-AFTRA.

Kaling discussed the challenges of modernizing the story for 2023-2024 while staying true to Elle Woods’ character and feminist themes. The absence of a trailer indicates that filming has not yet begun.

Witherspoon will reprise her role, emphasizing her close collaboration with Kaling on the script. While no other cast members have been officially announced, Kaling hinted at Jennifer Coolidge’s return as Paulette. Luke Wilson, who played Emmett Richmond, has also expressed interest in returning.

Kaling teased that both Elle and Paulette will have “very juicy” storylines. Fans can expect to see how these beloved characters have evolved over the past two decades.

As fans eagerly anticipate the return of Elle Woods and her iconic “bend and snap,” the delay in production is attributed to the complex task of bringing Elle into the modern world while preserving the essence of the beloved character.
