‘Okja’ Teaser Reteams Tilda Swinton With ‘Snowpiercer’ Director for Visionary Adventure (Video)

Netflix original film will premiere on June 28

Tilda Swinton is front and center in the first teaser for “Snowpiercer” director Bong Joon Ho’s new film “Okja.”

The film follows Mija, a young girl who risks everything to prevent a powerful, multi-national company from kidnapping her best friend, a massive animal named Okja.

Following her across continents, the coming-of-age comedy drama sees Mija’s horizons expand in a way one never would want for one’s children, coming up against the harsh realities of genetically modified food experimentation, globalization, eco-terrorism, and humanity’s obsession with image, brand and self-promotion.

In addition to Swinton, the film will also star Jake Gyllenhaal, Lily Collins, “Walking Dead” alum Steven Yeun, and Giancarlo Esposito. Netflix is co-producing the film along with Lewis Pictures and Brad Pitt‘s company Plan B Entertainment.

Joon Ho wrote the film with Jon Ronson in addition to directing. He will also produce along with Dooho Choi, Dede Gardner, Lewis Taewan Kim, Jeremy Kleiner, and Woo-sik Seo. Brad Pitt and Ted Sarandos executive produce.

“Okja” will debut exclusively on Netflix June 28.
