Netflix is ramping up its production of original movies, and now we have our first look at the upcoming film “Okja”.
The film follows the adventures of Mija, a young girl who must risk everything to prevent a powerful, multinational company from kidnapping her best friend — a huge, mysterious animal named Okja.
The film follows Mija (Seo-Hyun Ahn) as she journeys across continents, as her horizons expand in somewhat horrific way as she encounters such kid-unfriendly stuff as genetically modified food experimentation, globalization, eco-terrorism, and humanity’s obsession with image, brand and self-promotion.
Stars of “Okja” include Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, Lily Collins, Paul Dano, Devon Bostick, Steven Yeun and Giancarol Esposito (who’s “Breaking Bad” character will soon be making a prequel comeback in the upcoming season of “Better Call Saul”).
“Okja” will premiere on June 28.
