Netflix has just released a full trailer for Boon Joon Ho‘s newest film, “Okja.“ In the film, Korean girl Mija (newcomer Ahn Seo-hyun) is taking care of her best friend, a genetically altered giant pig named Okja. However, Okja’s owners, the Mirando Corperation, take Okja away.
Now, in order to save Okja from Mirando and its CEO Lucy Mirando (Tilda Swinton), Mija must team up with the Animal Liberation Front. Mija and ALF members Jay (Paul Dano), Red (Lily Collins), and K (Steven Yuen) must plan a heist where Lucy, eccentric Dr. Johnny Wilcox (Jake Gyllenhaal) and businessman Frank Dawson (Giancarlo Esposito) are holding a rally for a new meat product: Okja.
Boon Joon Ho directs the project and co-writes it with Jon Ronson. Plan B Entertainment is producing the project with Kate Street Picture Company and Lewis Pictures. “Okja” comes out on June 28 onto Netflix.
