Speaking to the site, Director Bong Joon Ho describes the titular monster as "a very shy and introverted animal," noting that "it's a unique animal that we've not seen before." Talking about Collins' character, Joon Ho says, "Red is part of a group of animal rights activists that figure into the story."

"On Wall Street, it's the heart of capitalism," the director says of the movie, which was filmed in the Financial District. He adds that it's not really about the titular creature. "On the surface is a story about an animal," he says, before adding, "But it's essentially a story about capitalism."

"Okja" is set to be released on Netflix in the summer of 2017. It focuses on Mija, a young girl who must risk everything to prevent a powerful, multi-national company from kidnapping her best friend - a massive animal named Okja.
