  • Okja’s face design was modeled after a manatee.
  • During the New York parade scene, Tilda Swinton wears a traditional Korean dress called “Han Bok”. Korean Han Bok are usually very colorful with red, blue and other bright colors, but Swinton’s matches her limited two-color palette.
  • Giancarlo Esposito replaced Bill Nighy after he dropped out.
  • The film contains a highly amusing scene which is a tongue in cheek parody of the iconic photograph of The White House photo taken on the night of the killing of Osama Bin Laden, right down the figure of Barack Obama in the corner and Hillary Clinton with her hand over her mouth.
  • Jake Gyllenhaal and Paul Dano also starred together in Prisoners (2013).
  • The scene of Nancy and the other members of Mirando watching the viral footage of Mija in Seoul references the photograph Situation Room taken by Pete Souza in which Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and other members of the Obama administration sit in the White House Situation Room receiving updates on the operation that led to the killing of Osama Bin Laden. Not only are the characters in Okja seated in a similar way, but Nancy, who sits in the same spot as Hillary Clinton does in the photograph, keeps her fingers in her mouth during the scene which is similar to the way Hillary Clinton’s hand covers her mouth in the photo.
  • Joon-ho Bong also directed Tilda Swinton in Snowpiercer (2013).
