It's official: Legally Blonde 3 is coming.

The "Legally Blonde" franchise followed a perpetually positive Woods as she pursued a law degree at Harvard University and then later a career in politics.

The first film was a box-office hit and received Golden Globe nominations in both the best actress and best musical or comedy categories.

The actress, advocate, and businesswoman posted an Instagram video (around 8:45 a.m., Eastern Standard Time, let the history records show) that featured a familiar scene for Elle Woods fans.

According to Deadline, Witherspoon's production company, Hello Sunshine, will reportedly produce the film along with MGM and the original film's producers, Marc Platt and Platt Productions president Adam Siegel. She ends up winning the seemingly impossible trial for the law school, and becomes a campus hero.

A carefree Witherspoon, 42, floats across a stunning infinity pool in the short video, which she captioned: "It's true". Legally Blonde has accumulated a loyal following since its premiere 17 years ago, thanks to Witherspoon's bubbly and honest portrayal of the air-headed sorority girl who chases a boy to Harvard only to realize her true calling as a lawyer.

Released in 2001, "Legally Blonde" grossed $141 million worldwide, while the 2003 sequel, "Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde" raked in $124 million.

"I think it'd be kind of cool to see her 15 years later, like what's she doing now?" she added. "And I have to create more and do better for other women, and create opportunities for other women".
