First footage of the mysterious movie — reportedly titled Guava Island — was posted on Twitter Saturday (Nov. 24) by what appears to be a PHAROS attendee.

The teaser opens with Glover (aka Childish Gambino) singing and playing guitar as his girlfriend, played by Rihanna, walks into the room behind him. From there, it takes some intense turns with Glover running around the city, performing, and even being taken hostage.
Gambino’s second PHAROS festival — a three-day virtual reality experience — launched in Auckland on Nov. 23. The multi-hyphenate artist first debuted his PHAROS festival in 2016 at Joshua Tree National Park in California, where he previewed music from his then-upcoming album, Awaken, My Love!
