Additionally, the set includes numerous iconic accessories from the film, such as a revolver, a fishing rod, a harpoon, a spear, and the signature yellow barrels that played a crucial role in the movie's plot.

In an innovative move to celebrate the launch, LEGO® has partnered with Universal Products & Experiences to create a unique 90-second mini-film titled Jaws... in Fast Forward. Directed by Steven Spielberg himself, this short film humorously recreates the most memorable scenes from Jaws using LEGO® bricks, culminating in a surprise minifigure reveal. This homage will be released on July 4th, paying tribute to the original film's release date and offering fans a delightful way to revisit the film’s iconic moments in a new format.

Johnny Campbell, the set's designer, shares his excitement and passion for the project: Jaws is my favorite movie, and I wanted to recreate its magic in LEGO® form.
