Reese Witherspoon Teases New Details About ‘Legally Blonde 3’

Shelby Chau / August 8, 2018

Reese Witherspoon first confirmed that Legally Blonde 3 is really happening in June, but the actress had yet to release any other juicy details—until now. Reese Witherspoon teased Entertainment Tonight with a few facts about the upcoming film yesterday!

It’s crazy that we’re even getting a new Legally Blonde. It’s been fifteen years since Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde, and Witherspoon has a busy schedule. The actress just debuted her own talk show, Shine On With Reese, with P!nk and Ava DuVernay. Her production company, Hello Sunshine, has a ton of films and series in development, including the second season of critical darling Big Little Lies (HBO) with Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman. Somehow, she’s also on board for Legally Blonde 3!

ET chatted with Witherspoon at the premiere of Shine On and got a few hints on the record. Reese was willing to say that “It’s gonna be so fun!” The actress stated that, “I got to go to a meeting the other day where we talked about all the new plot points and all the characters and some returning characters and some new characters. I mean, I got so excited just in the meeting. I was like, ‘This is gonna be good.’”

That’s the first confirmation we have that other characters from the first two films will also return for the unexpected sequel. It looks like writers Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith are already working hard, which means (fingers crossed) we should hear more production news and cast announcements soon!

The film is scheduled for release on Valentine’s Day 2020.
