Okja is the the first piece by Bong Joon-ho since 2013 Snowpiercer. It tells the story of Mija, a young girl who must risk everything to prevent a powerful multi-national company from kidnapping her best friend -- who, as it happens, is a massive animal named ‘Okja’.
The new teaser-trailer features a glimpse of a large, soft skinned, brown-eyed creature and includes a description in Korean that it is 'somewhere between human and animal.'
A platinum-blond, bony Tilda Swinton is apparently behind Okja's creation: 'I took nature and science, and synthesized,' she gushes in that crepuscular way that only Swinton can do.
The short trailer also shows the lead South Korean actress, Seohyun An, desperately searching in the Okja in the woods, along a caption in Korean that reads "Love and the fear within it."
With Oscar winner Erik-Jan de Boer (Life of Pi) supervising the visual effects of the $50 million film and a cast that glittery, this Netflix film is set to make waves.
