In the moving caption, Blair spoke about making "lifetime friends" with the other cast members.

"I made lifetime friends," she said. "Fell on my face impersonating Billy Elliot. Right after the group shot. Where I am standing on my toes. Trying to be taller. While Reese was inside... on set working. Making Elle Woods. I love you all."

Legally Blonde fans are now gearing up for a third film set for release in May 2022.

Comedian Mindy Kaling helmed the script and has spoken about bringing Elle Woods into the 2020s.

"Elle Woods is such an iconic character and so loved," Kaling told Elle Magazine. "Ordinarily, I think I would actually not find that really fun to do because the expectations are set. But because we haven't seen the character in 18 years, I was excited. We know what Elle was like when she was 21, 22 years old.

"But what about when she's 42? That character, so innocent and girly, what is she like when she's dealing with adult problems and is an adult woman? She's not a little girl anymore."
