It’s official — Elle Woods is headed back to the big screen! (What, like it’s hard?)

Earlier this week, reports that Reese Witherspoon was reprising her iconic Legally Blonde character for a third installment of the beloved film franchise had the internet buzzing.

And on Thursday, the 42-year-old actress confirmed the Legally Blonde 3 news by slipping back into the pink sequin bikini Elle wore for her Harvard Law application in the original 2001 film.

“It’s true,” she wrote on social media, captioning a video of herself in the two piece as she drifted on a blue pool float.

Astute fans will remember the clip from July 2016, when Witherspoon celebrated the 15th anniversary of Legally Blonde by trying on Elle’s original costumes and reenacting the movie’s most iconic scenes.

Getting the costumes was easy for Witherspoon, considering she still has the garb in a storage box — fuzzy heels and all.

She happily showed off each outfit on Snapchat, from the dress Elle wore during her ill-fated date with Warner to the pink Playboy bunny Halloween costume she was tricked into wearing at Harvard’s Halloween party.

And yes, Witherspoon even recited lines from the film — including that age-old fashion maxim fans have lived by since they first met Elle (“Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed”) and the most successful flirtation move of all time, the Bend and Snap (“Works every time!”).

Legally Blonde follows sorority girl Elle, who decides to trail her ex boyfriend to Harvard Law school after he breaks her heart. In addition to Woods, the comedy starred Luke Wilson, Jennifer Coolidge, Selma Blair, Victor Garber and Ali Larter.

The film was followed up with a 2003 sequel, Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde, which centers on Elle’s life post-Harvard as she made her move to Washington D.C. to start a career in politics. Sally Field and Regina King were among its stars.

Plot points or returning cast members haven’t been announced yet for Legally Blonde 3, but the third installment will have a new producer: Witherspoon, herself.

    EllieJarvis I just got paid $7500 working off my laptop this month. And if you think that’s cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $10k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do... www.Jobzon3.com
