Havana, Cuba

YouTube has announced Guava Island — the new Childish Gambino and Rihanna film  — will premiere on the streaming platform as part of the Coachella live stream. Although the premiere date has yet to be announced, ads last week suggested it will be unveiled on April 13, the night after Gambino’s headlining set.

Directed by Hiro Murai, the film was shot at least partially in Cuba and also stars Black Panther actress Letitia Wright and Nonso Anozie.

Gambino unveiled a trailer for the film at the PHAROS Festival last November. Other than that, the film’s details have been shrouded in mystery.

According to a press release, YouTube is providing the “global stage” in an effort to unite artists and fans with the live stream performances. In addition to Gambino, Juice WRLD, Kid Cudi and Wiz Khalifa are expected to perform at the annual festival.

Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival takes place on April 12-14 and April 19-21.

Rihanna and Donald Glover were in Cuba over the summer filming a new Hiro Murai movie called Guava Island. Now, a first look at the film has arrived. During Glover’s PHAROS Festival in New Zealand this weekend, those in attendance got a sneak peek of the forthcoming project.

Subsequently, an unofficial teaser started floating around on Sunday (November 25) from someone who was in the audience.

Toward the end of the roughly two-minute clip, the credits reveal RiRi, Black Panther star Letitia Wright and Nonso Anozie are among those starring in the film.

No further details have been disclosed.

Watch the trailer below.
