Chang Hyung-yun’s animated feature ‘Satellite Girl and Milk Cow’ is coming June 5 to Blu-ray and DVD from Shout! Factory and GKIDS.

LOS ANGELES -- GKIDS and Shout! Factory will release June 5 the fantasy and science-fiction romance Satellite Girl and Milk Cow on Blu-ray and DVD, including as a bonus feature the short film Coffee Vending Machine And Its Sword and trailers for the feature.

The debut feature-length film from Korean director Chang Hyung-yun, acclaimed creator of animated short films that have premiered and won prizes at festivals worldwide, the highly original Satellite Girl and Milk Cow was produced by Cho Young-kag (The Fake, The King of Pigs), and received an Asia Pacific Screen Award nomination for best animated feature.

An out-of-commission satellite picks up a lovelorn ballad on its radio antenna and descends to Earth to find the source of such sincere emotions. But on the way it 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 twentysomething 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 -- the duo must evade the all-consuming incinerator monster, the wily pig witch, and other nefarious adversaries in an attempt to be together.
