We’ll be providing a rundown of our most-anticipated films of next year come January and, rest assured, one feature quite high up on the list will be Bong Joon-ho‘s Snowpiercer follow-up, the monster movie Okja. Starring Ahn Seo-hyun, Tilda Swinton, Jake Gyllenhaal, Paul Dano, Steven Yeun, Lily Collins, Devon Bostick, Byun Hee-bong, and Shirley Henderson, today brings new images and details.
“It’s a very shy and introverted animal. It’s a unique animal that we’ve not seen before,” the director tells EW, regarding the main creature. Following a young girl named Mija, the Netflix-produced and distributed feature tracks her struggle to stop a multinational corporation from kidnapping the titular monster, who just so happens to be her best friend — and a genetically manufactured pig.
As we await the first footage, check out the first look at Seo-hyun’s Mija above and Collins’ Red, who is part of an animal rights activist group, as well as a storyboard of her race through Manhattan.
Okja will arrive this summer.
