Legally Blonde's story was inspired by Amanda Brown's life as a chic blonde girl who went to Stanford Law School. Brown told her parents about these experiences in letters, which she later adapted into a manuscript. It eventually caught the interest of Legally Blonde's producer Marc Platt. Legally Blonde was officially released on July 13, 2001 and was well-received by its critics, noting Reese Witherspoon's hilarious performance. It claimed various nominations and awards at award-giving ceremonies, including Golden Globe Awards, British Comedy Awards, and MTV Movie & TV Awards. The film garnered gross earnings amounting to $141.7 million. Its box office success paved the way for a 2003 sequel, Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde, and a 2009 direct-to-DVD spin-off, Legally Blondes. On top of that, the film's success also led to Legally Blonde: The Musical, which premiered on January 23, 2007, in San Francisco and opened in New York City at the Palace Theatre on Broadway on April 29, 2007. The musical starred Laura Bell Bundy as Elle. As of June 2018, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer has revealed that Legally Blonde 3 is already in the works and is set to be released on February 14, 2020.
