It’s been a while since Reese Witherspoon captured our hearts as Elle Woods in “Legally Blonde” and its sequel, “Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde.” Fans are clearly looking forward to seeing a “Legally Blonde 3” from the star, but it’s not clear whether the movie will ever be made. However, Witherspoon seems to be optimistic about the project and has an idea of whom she would like to see a return to the franchise with her.

Chatting with ET about a potential third film, Witherspoon spoke about which characters she would like to see again. "It's just a development project right now, so we'll see," the actress said. "I love Jennifer Coolidge and Luke Wilson and Selma Blair and so there's so many great characters that people love," she continued. "If we end up doing it, hopefully, they end up all being there."

Audiences were first introduced to Elle Woods in 2001 as she tackled law school at Harvard in an effort to win back her ex-boyfriend Warner (Matthew Davis) while also discovering that she has more than just good looks and a fashion sense. This 2003 sequel caught up with Elle working as a lawyer trying to make a difference in Washington, DC by passing a bill to ban animal testing. Both films came out as a success, so it’s no wonder viewers are clamoring for a third movie to see what Witherspoon's character has been up to.

Since 2018, there have been talks of Witherspoon returning to reprise her role in a third installment. According to a report from Deadline, the actress would produce the film under her production label Hello Sunshine alongside MGM. The studio even teased the story's return on Twitter, saying that the film was ready to release on Valentine’s Day 2020. However, the public hasn’t heard any news of development from MGM or the actress regarding the third movie since.

For now, audiences can catch Witherspoon in the upcoming series “The Morning Show” along with Jennifer Aniston on Apple TV+ beginning Nov. 1.
