Legally Blonde prequel announced – following Elle Woods in the 90s

If you know the first cardinal rule of perm maintenance and the importance of a scented resume, you’re going to be excited about Reese Witherspoon’s latest news.

The Hollywood star has announced a prequel series to her hit 2001 film Legally Blonde, set to premiere in 2025.

Dressed in a hot pink suit and pale pink stilettos (because whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed), Withers Spoon shared details on his social networks.

The TV series will follow her character, Elle Woods, as a schoolgirl in the 1990s, before the events of Legally Blonde and its 2003 sequel.

In a video shared to Instagram, Witherspoon can be seen getting dressed and applying pink lipstick before holding up a “top secret” perfume script ahead of an Amazon Prime Video presentation to advertisers – featuring the soundtrack from Perfect Day, the one of the songs from the film.

“Before she became Harvard’s most famous Gemini vegetarian and law graduate, she was just an ordinary high school student in the ’90s,” Witherspoon wrote. “And you’re all going to get to know her next year on @primevideo. I’M SO EXCITED!”

Witherspoon will executive produce the Prime Video series, which will be called Elle.

Legally Blonde followed sorority Elle Woods as she surprised her friends, family and professors by being admitted to Harvard Law School – in search of a boyfriend who broke up with her.

But during her studies, she showed that she had the makings of a very competent lawyer – and a winner in a murder trial.
