The sons of police chief Brody must protect customers at a SeaWorld theme park after a thirty-five-foot shark becomes trapped in the park with them.
The female dolphin called Sandy in the movie is really a male dolphin named Capricorn. He currently lives in Discovery Cove, which is owned by SeaWorld Orlando, and has interactions with guests like giving them rides and doing tricks for them. Capricorn is fifty years old.
What if she doesn't want to go back in?
Philip FitzRoyce: Oh, I think we can pretty much guarantee that she'll want to go back in. Don't you, Jack?
Jack Tate: Sure.
Mike Brody: Well, just how are you going to guarantee that?
Philip FitzRoyce: Live bait.
The speed of the sharks are inconsistent within some scenes.
In the original 3D version, the Universal Pictures Logo is in 3D. Plus the title "Jaws 3D" comes "toward" the viewer, clamping together as if it was like a shark's mouth.
Two-dimensional VHS, LaserDisc and TV versions used an alternate opening credit, entitling the movie "JAWS III" rather than "JAWS 3-D" for obvious reasons (although the animated graphic remained identical, with the words swooping out toward the camera). Later 2D disc releases, for instance the Blu-ray version, were mastered straight from a 3D print and use the original "JAWS 3-D" title.
