Elle Woods actress Reese Witherspoon appeared overjoyed and giddy in the snippet which showcased a sneak peek of the legendary reunion
The Oscar winner, 44, touted the virtual get-together as their reuniting “for the first time in 20 years.” The reunion special is in support of World Central Kitchen.
“OMG you guys!! It’s a Legally Blonde Reunion. 🎀 We laughed, we cried and we may or may not have done the bend & snap for old times sake! 💅🏽,” Witherspoon wrote on Instagram, sharing a teaser clip ahead of the reunion. “PS: Don’t you want to see if Elle & Warner finally make up?”
In a brief glimpse, the promo shows the costars laughing in a virtual group video chat, including Luke Wilson, Holland Taylor, Jennifer Coolidge, Selma Blair, Ali Larter, Jessica Cauffiel and Alanna Ubach.
Legally Blonde, which casts Witherspoon as Harvard Law student Elle Woods as she defies expectations to excel in the courtroom, was followed up with a sequel in 2003, subtitled Red, White & Blonde. Mindy Kaling is currently drafting a third installment.
“I’d been working with her on a couple movies and we’ve been friends for a while,” Kaling said. “I have always quoted the movies to her — I was that annoying friend that would be like, ‘Bend and snap’ to her. And she asked me, ‘You know, I’d really love to revisit this character.’”
The 41-year-actress told Good Morning America earlier this month that she spent years quoting the iconic movie to her friend and frequent costar Witherspoon, before Witherspoon approached her with the idea to make a third movie.
