Netflix’s Okja Not Just a Monster Movie

Okja

Director Bong Joon Ho (Snowpiercer, The Host, Mother) is back with a new movie called Okja, and Entertainment Weekly has your first stills. Read on!

Okja is named for another mysterious creature, but Joon-ho says, “It’s a very shy and introverted animal. It’s a unique animal that we’ve not seen before.

The story follows Okja and Mija (Ahn Seo-hyun), a young South Korean girl, and their adventure leads to New York City. “Red (Lily Collins) is part of a group of animal rights activists that figure into the story,” teases Joon-ho, who filmed in the Financial District. “On Wall Street, it’s the heart of capitalism,” the director notes. “On the surface is a story about an animal, but it’s essentially a story about capitalism.” Nothing monstrous about that!

Okja is due to arrive on Netflix this summer.
