New Okja Trailer: It’s a Girl and Her Beast Against the World

By

Mija (Ahn Seo-hyun) lives in the mountains of South Korea, spending the days with her best friend Okja, an exotic piglike creature. When Tilda Swinton’s huge corporation gets wind of Okja and abducts the animal, Mija sets out on a rescue mission bolstered by the pro-animal efforts of Paul Dano and Steven Yeun. Okja comes from South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho, who crafted a breathtaking sci-fi spectacle with the critically acclaimed Snowpiercer. The film premiered at Cannes to positive reviews — Vulture’s Emily Yoshida called it a wacky yet “deeply humane film” — and a bit of controversy, as Netflix doesn’t plan to release it in French theaters. Okja will be available on Netflix and in U.S. theaters June 28.
