More than 20 years after the first film, we are going to have three to the third installment of Legally Blonde.

Legally Blonde 3 hits theaters after years of waiting. The third installment will once again feature Reese Witherspoon as Elle Woods, the delicate student-turned-lawyer who has won over fans around the world since her debut in 2001. The new film is a direct sequel to The Blonde Strikes Back, which was released in September 2003.

Viewers fell in love with Elle Woods’s charm and fashion sense, as well as her wit among staid Harvard law students. In fact, the adoration for the characters and the plot of the film is in large part what makes it such a timeless classic. Many of the film’s scenes are visually iconic, which is why pop star Ariana Grande’s music video “Thank U, Next” refers to A Blonde's Revenge. At the time of its release, the film may not have been billed as a feminist film. However, female fans of the franchise have hailed Elle Woods as a feminist icon over the years, citing how she has complicated stereotypes about sisterhood girls and very feminine women and their career aspirations.

In the first film, Elle Woods enrolls in Harvard Law School to upset her ex-boyfriend, Warner, who broke up with her on the grounds that she couldn't stand the seriousness of her upbringing at school. . Woods ultimately had the final say, successfully arguing a court case, earning his law degree from Harvard, and finding himself a new boyfriend in the process. Reese Witherspoon returned for The Blonde Strikes Back, which continues the love story between Woods and her boyfriend-turned-fiancé Emmett Richmond (played by Luke Wilson), the sequel culminating in their marriage. With a husband, a loving dog, and a law degree, what can Elle Woods do now? Here's what fans can expect from Legally Blonde 3.

Release date of legally blonde 3

It has been announced that Legally Blonde 3 will finally hit theaters on May 22, 2022, in France, the anticipated end of a long production run that has kept fans of the film series waiting. The road to that date has been strewn with challenges due to two major setbacks. Obviously, delays due to the coronavirus halted production. But another reason for that elusive release date was the changes to the writing team. Reese Witherspoon announced the third film as early as 2018, but it took a few years for all the pieces to fall into place perfectly for production to really begin.


The casting of the third part

In addition to Reese Witherspoon's return to the new feature film, more cast members from the original films are planned. Confirmed cast members so far are Jennifer Coolidge, Alanna Ubach, and Jessica Cauffel, who are reprising their roles as Paulette Bonafonté, Margot, and Serena McGuire respectively. Luke Wilson's return has yet to be confirmed. While no other cast has been confirmed yet, it's likely other members of the original cast will return as well, judging by a recent anniversary panel hosted by Hello Sunshine, Reese Witherspoon's production company.

In fact, Reese Witherspoon had more of a say in the production this time around, as Hello Sunshine is producing Legally Blonde 3. Plus, the change of writers for the film brought some big names with him. Mindy Kaling and Brooklyn Nine-Nine creator Dan Goor rewrote the screenplay. So fans can expect a comedic tone in keeping with Mindy Kaling's wit and Dan Goor's sane humor.

Plot and story details of legally blonde 3

The plot of the third film is not yet known, but Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling have hinted at the predominance of female empowerment themes in the new installment. Reese Witherspoon said Legally Blonde 3 would be "full of great feminist ideas." As with any aspect of social discourse, feminist perspectives have certainly evolved since 2001. It will be entertaining to see how Mindy Kaling’s writing reflects current ideas of feminism. In a way, Legally Blonde 3 is an opportunity for Reese Witherspoon and her beloved Elle Woods to show the audience how they have evolved over the past two decades.

Legally Blonde 3 is due out in theaters on May 22, 2022, in France.
