Reese Witherspoon has given an update on Legally Blonde 3

Reese Witherspoon’s most iconic character is making a comeback.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, the Academy Award winning actress confirmed that Legally Blonde 3 is officially underway!

“Oh it’s gonna be so fun!” she said. “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’.”

The American actress – who recently earned acclaim for her role in HBO’s Big Little Lies – will reunite with original writers Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith and Karen McCullah, for another inspiring story about female empowerment.

She will have more of a presence behind-the-scenes, as a producer, via her Hello Sunshine production company.

The original film, released in 2001, earned over $140 million at the worldwide box office.

Reese’s performance – which is often considered her Hollywood breakthrough – received rave reviews from critics, ultimately earning her a Golden Globe nomination. How she didn’t win is beyond us.

The film tells the story of Elle Woods, a sorority girl who decides to enroll into law school in order to win back her ex-boyfriend.

It also starred Selma Blair, Luke Wilson, Matthew Davis, Victor Garber, Jennifer Coolidge, Holland Taylor, Ali Larter and Linda Cardellini.

The box office success led to a sequel in 2003 – Red, White & Blonde – a direct-to-DVD spin-off, and a Broadway musical. See? Iconic.

While we patiently wait for more details about Legally Blonde 3, watch one of the most iconic scenes from the original – the bend and snap. We’ve all done this to impress a guy, haven’t we? Elle Woods, ha impact!
