Legally Blonde 3 Release Date: When Will the Third Movie Come Out?
Elle Woods hasn't walked the hallowed halls of Harvard for more than 20 years, but the story isn't over yet. In 2018, it was announced that Reese Witherspoon would play the famous movie character from the 2000s for the third time.
The feel-good movie doesn't have a director yet, but the screenplay was written by Mindy Kaling of Never Have I Ever and Dan Goor of The Office, so we have high hopes for it, even though the Legally Blonde 3 release date seems far away.
But you can be sure that Elle Woods herself is the most excited about the comedy movie. Witherspoon told USA Today, “It's just like Top Gun: they waited a long time to make another version of that movie, and I loved the nostalgic parts they put in.
So, that gave us a lot of ideas about what we wanted to do with Elle Woods and how we wanted to make sure it had all the same things that were important to people back then.
When Will Legally Blonde 3 Be Released?
We don't know when Legally Blonde 3 will come out, which is sad. The movie was supposed to come out in May 2022, but that date has been moved back indefinitely. Kaling says that this is because they want to change the script and make sure the movie is good.
“Trying to figure that out in an honest way is the hardest part of this project,” she told TIME. “We don't want to be the ones to ruin what is basically Reese's Avengers franchise.”
It's hard to say when the movie will come out before the script is done. This is because we will need time for casting and editing, which can take anywhere from one to two years. So, we think the movie won't come out until 2023 or 2024 at the earliest.
Who Will Be in the Cast of Legally Blonde 3?
Only two people in the cast of Legally Blonde 3 are known for sure: Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Coolidge, who will be back as Elle Woods and Paulette, respectively. The following cast members are expected to return in season 3:
- Reese Witherspoon as Elle Woods
- Luke Wilson as Emmett
- Jennifer Coolidge as Paulette
- Selma Blair as Vivian
- Matthew Davis as Warner
- Ali Larter as Brooke Windham
- Jessica Cauffiel as Margot
- Holland Taylor as Professor Stromwell

What Will Happen in Legally Blonde 3?
In an interview with TIME, Mindy Kaling hinted that Legally Blonde 3 will show how an older and wiser Elle Woods deals with the 21st century.
She asked, “What is Elle Woods like at 42? Is she all the things she wanted to be?” How does that persona show up in a woman as she gets older? Is she getting more bitter? When she was 22, her brightness and happiness really helped her, but how has life changed her view of things?
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, MGM executive Pamela Abdy hinted that the movie would also show how Elle deals with being a mother. She said, “Elle is a mother with a thriving career. We hope to get the script in the first quarter of 2022.”
Is there any Trailer for Legally Blonde 3?

Why Did Legally Blonde 3 Take So Long to Come Out?
Legally Blonde 3 was supposed to come out in May 2022, but it has been put off indefinitely, and no new date has been set.
Fans have, of course, been wondering why the show hasn't come out yet. Now, scriptwriter Mindy Kaling has talked about why the project is taking longer than expected. Part of the reason is that Kaling and co-writer Dan Goor want to make sure the story is right.
Kaling told TIME, “We don't want to be the ones to ruin what is essentially Reese's Avengers franchise.”
She then gave hints about the questions that she and co-writer Dan Goor are trying to answer in the script by saying, “How is 42-year-old Elle Woods? Does she become everything she wanted to be? How does that persona show up in a woman as she gets older? Is she getting more bitter? When she was 22, her brightness and happiness helped her a lot. How has life changed her view of things?”
Referring to the new season of Sex and the City And that was that. Kaling said that the show was “uncomfortable to watch,” and she added, “I felt sorry for the producers and writers of the show, who were trying to deal with all these problems from the past, be funny and fabulous, and also sort of apologise for itself.”
When she talked about Legally Blonde 3, she said, “Trying to figure that out in a real way is the hardest part of this project. Since we watched “And Just Like That” and saw how they took a character from 18 years ago and made her look like she did now, we want to make sure that Elle Woods is not being punished for being alive in 2022.”
She said, “The character in this world doesn't scare us, and we don't feel like we have to apologise for her. As a fan, I didn't want her show to end or turn into a Karen. So the person is just a lot of fun. That's what makes it fun and hard, and it's also why it's taking us so long to write.”
