Host an ‘Okja’ Movie Party!

Written by Tiffany Rose

It’s official: The world is smitten with Okja, the Netflix original movie that follows Mija, a young girl who risks everything to prevent her best friend, a massive super-pig hybrid, from being slaughtered for food.

This film is a game-changer, y’all—just check out these reactions to see what I mean! Okja is available on Netflix, which means it’s the perfect film to screen while you host a movie party and get your friends thinking about who is on their plate.

Here are some tips to get you started:

So sit back, enjoy the film, and rest easy knowing that by getting friends and family to watch the film, you’re making a difference.

Remember: Eat okra, not Okja!
