Donald Glover’s “Guava Island” Film Project With Rihanna Gets Its Teaser

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.

“We live in paradise but none of us actually have the time or the means to live here,” his character says at one point in the clip.

The film is directed by Hiro Murai, the director behind Glover’s “This Is America” video, and reportedly shot in Cuba, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The teaser clip bills the film as a “Childish Gambino Production.” It will also feature Black Panther‘s Letitia Wright and Nonso Anozie.

Billboard has reached out to Glover’s representatives for comment.

In August, a photo of Glover and Rihanna on the set of the film went viral online. Neither artist has posted any information about it on their social media channels.
