Netflix have released the official trailer for Okja, the upcoming film starring Tilda Swinton.

It includes a first full look at the massive animal at the heart of Director Bong Joon Ho’s latest film.

Okja will have its world premiere at the 70th Cannes Film Festival.

Director Bong, a visionary director and one of the world’s greatest storytellers, has assembled an esteemed international ensemble cast that includes
Tilda Swinton, Paul Dano, Byun Heebong, Steven Yeun, Lily Collins,
Giancarlo Esposito, Jake Gyllenhaal and introducing An Seo Hyun as Mija.

For 10 idyllic years, young Mija (An Seo Hyun) has been caretaker and constant companion to Okja—a massive animal and an even bigger friend—at her home in the mountains of South Korea. But that changes when a family-owned multinational conglomerate Mirando Corporation takes Okja for themselves 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.

With no particular plan but single-minded in intent, Mija sets out on a rescue mission, but her already daunting journey quickly becomes more complicated when she crosses paths with disparate groups of capitalists, demonstrators and consumers, each battling to control the fate of Okja…while all Mija wants to do is bring her friend home.

Deftly blending genres, humor, poignancy and drama, Bong Joon Ho (Snowpiercer, The Host) begins with the gentlest of premises—the bond between man and animal—and ultimately creates a distinct and layered vision of the world that addresses the animal inside us all.

Okja is a Plan B Entertainment, Lewis Pictures and Kate Street Picture Company production in association with Netflix.

Okja will premiere exclusively on Netflix on 28th June.
