Yes, there will be another Legally Blonde movie. Yes, Reese Witherspoon will produce and star. And yes, she said she has received inspiration from an action movie.

Honest. Witherspoon cited no less than the Top Gun: Maverick flick as a reason that nostalgic stuff works.

“I’m still hoping that Legally Blonde 3 is gonna come together in the right way,” she 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 nostalgia piece they incorporated in it.”

Witherspoon actually confirmed back in 2018 that she would revive her role as Elle Woods in Legally Blonde 3. It was initially set for a May 2022 release. But some creative changes extended those plans.

Nonetheless, it will be released eventually. And we have Top Gun at least partially to thank.

“So definitely that gave us a lot of inspiration about what we would want to do with Elle Woods and make sure that we had all those same touchstones that mattered to people (back) then,” Witherspoon said. “I feel like these characters are my friends, so I safeguard them. I would never make the subpar, mediocre version of their story.”

As an interesting aside, Mindy Kaling of The Office fame co-wrote the script for Legally Blonde 3.

“There’s definitely gonna be a lot of new faces in the movie,” Kaling told E! News. “Reflecting the world as it is now is something that’s really important to Reese, and so having there be like diversity is super, super important. You can definitely count on that.”
