For 10 idyllic years, young Mija (An Seo Hyun) has been caretaker and constant companion to Okja.
That all changes when the Mirando Corporation takes Okja and transports her to New York, where image obsessed and self-promoting CEO Lucy Mirando (Tilda Swinton) has big plans for Mija’s dearest friend.
Bong Joon Ho – director of The Host and Snowpiercer – has a new film, Okja, that tells the story of a girl named Mija and her best friend – an enormous animal called Okja – as they try to keep Okja safe from a powerful multi-national company.
The first teaser as a bit of an Island of Doctor Moreau feel to it and is genuinely creepy.
Netflix has released two first look stills and a storyboard from the Netflix original film Okja, a bold global adventure from director Bong Joon Ho (The Host, Snowpiercer).
Okja stars Tilda Swinton (Hail, Caesar!), Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler), Paul Dano (Love & Mercy), Lily Collins (Rules Don’t Apply), Steven Yeun (“The Walking Dead”), and Giancarlo Esposito (“Breaking Bad”) – and will premiere in 2017.
