GKIDS and Shout! Factory have dated the charmingly kooky fantasy/sci-fi romance Satellite Girl and Milk Cow on Blu-ray and DVD for June 5, 2018. Having launched on VRV last month, the Asia Pacific Screen Award-winning film now comes home accompanied by director Chang Hyung-yun’s short Coffee Vending Machine and Its Sword and bonus trailers.
This highly original movie is the first feature-length film from Korean filmmaker Chang, whose short films have screened at festivals around the world and earned prizes from the Hiroshima International Animation Festival and Puchon Fantastic Film Festival. Satellite and Milk Cow is produced by Cho Young-kag (The Fake, The King of Pigs).
Synopsis: An out of commission satellite picks up a lovelorn ballad on her radio antenna and descends to Earth to find the source of such sincere emotions. But on the way she is caught in a raging magical battle and transforms into Satellite Girl, complete with rocket shoes and weapon-firing limbs. Meanwhile, the balladeer in question – a loser 20-something at a café open mic – meets the fate that befalls all broken-hearted lovers: he is turned into a farm animal. But love knows no bounds, and aided by the wise and powerful Merlin – a wizard who has been turned into a roll of toilet paper – our duo must evade the all-consuming incinerator monster, the wily pig witch, and other nefarious adversaries in an attempt to be together.
