Watch The Gorgeous Trailer For Bong Joon-Ho's Okja

Okja must be saved in the new trailer for the upcoming Netflix movie. The film follows a young girl named Mija (Ahn Seo-hyun) who risks everything to save her best friend, a massive animal named Okja, from being kidnapped by a massive conglomerate led by Tilda Swinton's Lucy Mirando

"We needed a miracle," Mirando begins the trailer, as her speech is intercut by images of Mija playing with Okja. "And then we got one. This beautiful and special little creature will be a revolution in the livestock industry. Our super pigs will not only be big and beautiful; they will also leave a minimal footprint on the environment, consume less feed, and produce less excretions. And, most importantly, they need to taste f***ing good." 

Mija's peaceful existence with Okja is quickly interrupted as Mirando puts her plan into action, kidnapping the animal and ripping the two apart. Mija is somehow connected with a group of animal lovers, led by Paul Dano's Jay, who say that they want to expose Mirando and rescue Okja. However, Mirando has no plans of going down without a fight, saying that she won't let that "farmer girl" destroy ten years of planning. 

The gorgeous trailer hints at another beautiful and bizarre film from Snowpiercer's Bong Joon-ho, who directed the film and co-wrote the script with Jon Ronson (Frank). Jake Gyllenhaal, Lily Collins, Steven Yeun, Devon Bostick, Daniel Henshall, Shirley Henderson, Giancarlo Esposito also star in the movie, which is due on the streaming service on June 28. While we wait, see the films and TV shows it will have to compete with to become one of Netflix's best exclusive releases.
