It was the movie franchise that challenged female stereotypes and now it's back to reinforce the message that women can kick arse.
Reese Witherspoon has confirmed there will be a Legally Blonde 3 and she's slipped back into her sorority queen-turned-successful lawyer role for it.
In the iconic pink sequin bikini, Elle Woods appeared on a pool lounger in an Instagram video, that was accompanied with the simple caption: "It's true... #LegallyBlonde3"
Fans will find hard to believe that Reese is now 42 years old as her appearance is much the same to 17 years ago when Elle made her debut on the big screen.
Deadline has reported that much of the original creative team would be back on board for the third instalment of Legally Blonde.

As well as starring, Witherspoon will co-produce under the banner of her company Hello Sunshine.
The original comedy, about a woman who goes to Harvard law school to win back the affections of her ex-boyfriend, was released in 2001 and the sequel Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde, followed in 2003.
The first movie grossed $141 million worldwide on an $18 million budget, and the sequel brought in $124 million on a $45 million budget.
Reports are that the plot will be in the spirit of the first film and be more about female empowerment, YAAAAS QUEEN!
