The highly anticipated Donald Glover and Rihanna-starred movie Guava Island will be exclusively released on Amazon on April 13th, which caused concern for the fans without a subscription. Still, it turns out that they will get a chance to see the movie as well.

Amazon decided to make Guava Island available for free on their streaming platform for 18 hours from the moment the movie gets a launch at 12:01 am on April 13th. The film will also be streamed on Twitch.

Guava Island premiered at this year’s Coachella following the performance of Donald Glover’s music persona Childish Gambino at the festival’s main stage. The movie is directed by Glover’s frequent collaborator Hiro Murai and written by the actor’s brother Stephen Glover.

Vanity Fair describes the film as a “music-driven hour-long film” while the recent report suggests that the movie revolves around a local musician (Glover) who is determined to throw a festival.

“I’m really humbled having the opportunity to present something this timely and timeless. Between Rihanna and the people of Cuba, this is one of my favorite projects I’ve ever worked on,” said Glover about the movie.

Guava Island is the end result of four incredible weeks spent in Cuba with some of the most inspiring creative talents I’ve ever met,” added Murai. “Designers, performers, musicians, and filmmakers came together from all over the world to create this crazy fever dream of a production.”
