May. 19 2020, Updated 1:22 p.m. ET

Almost two full decades have passed since the slightly underwhelming sequel to Legally Blonde (which, in case you didn't remember, was titled Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde) premiered back in 2003. However, it seems as though the widely beloved rom com is getting a third installment, so we can all live out our beloved pre-teen years once again.

It's been two long years since Reese Witherspoon hinted at a third installment, but since the film was officially green-lit, fans are eager to know what Legally Blonde 3 will be about. Since speculations are currently running rampant, we've done a little digging to find out more about the highly anticipated third Legally Blonde film.

What is 'Legally Blonde 3' going to be about?

As of publication, not much is known regarding the plot of Legally Blonde 3, however, we do have a little information that could give us insight on what to expect. According to Deadline, Reese Witherspoon (who played Elle Woods in the first two films) is going to reprise her role of the ambitious attorney almost 20 years after her case regarding the ban of animal testing. Rumor has it she may run for office, or something of the like.

It's also been confirmed that the third movie isn't going to be a "makeover" or a remake of any kind. The screenplay is apparently going to be totally fresh with a brand-new plot, and most likely some new characters. We're really hoping for a return from Emmett, Paulette, and Elle's beloved pup Bruiser, but the latter is somewhat unlikely, unless they've found a way to keep dogs alive for over 20 years.

Who else will be working on the movie?

Although the original screenwriters are apparently no longer set to write the screenplay for Legally Blonde 3, we're looking forward to having The Mindy Project's Mindy Kaling, who will be co-writing alongside Dan Gnoor, according to PopSugar. This is apparently their second project together, as they're also reportedly working on a wedding comedy with Priyanka Chopra.

The third film in the franchise will also apparently be produced through Reese's production studio, Hello Sunshine, which will be led by the franchise's original producer, Marc Platt. Needless to say, we know it's going to be good.

When Reese isn't working on 'Legally Blonde 3,' she's exploring the world of TikTok.

We all know that Reese is a social media boss, and earlier this year, her teenage son, Deacon, helped her join the short-form video platform, known as TikTok. The two did a video together in which he showed her a classic TikTok dance, which she obviously slayed, and since, she's made a handful of other quality vids.

She also took to the app to show off her new Ivy Park wardrobe from her BFF, Beyoncé. Needless to say, she's thriving online and in the world of Hollywood.

It goes without saying we're hyped for Legally Blonde 3, so we'll definitely keep you posted on more updates. In all honesty, I think all of us could use an inspirational rom com right about now.
