Rihanna and Childish Gambino have been working on a relatively secretive project for the past few years now titled “Guava Island” which is set to be a complete film. With the 2019 Coachella festival just around the corner, the two superstars recently announced that their film will be live-streamed on YouTube as part of the Coachella experience during its opening weekend. This announcement and the timing of the entire situation is absolutely perfect which makes you wonder if this is what the two stars had in mind from the beginning. Genius marketing and quality content is something that both Gambino and Rihanna are known for so fans are really excited about the news.
How to watch the live stream
The Guava Island live stream is rumored to take place on April 13th as some fans pointed out via a cryptic ad that appeared on Spotify playlists although an official date has yet to be released. Childish Gambino is scheduled to perform at the 2019 Coachella Festival on April 12th so if the rumors are true, it would be perfect timing. Since the announcement of the project, details surrounding exactly what the movie is about have been very scarce.
A few months ago, Childish Gambino and Rihanna posted a vague photo on social media showing the two wearing beach attire which hinted at the movie’s upcoming release.
The production behind the film
Guava Island is being directed by longtime Childish Gambino friend and associate Hiro Murai who also worked on Gambino’s popular “Atlanta” TV series. Being that the two already have an established relationship, fans can’t wait to see how they’re chemistry displays on screen with this upcoming release. There has been very little media coverage about the location or specific production details involved with the film besides what looks like an obvious island theme.
With Gambino and Murai already proving their ability to produce high-quality entertainment, fans can rest assured that they can expect an incredible piece of work. The recent news of a possible debut of the film at the 2019 Coachella festival definitely adds an entirely new level of production value to the film overall which fans weren’t originally expecting.
What to expect
With Childish Gambino set to headline the 2019 Coachella festival on April 12th and the recent news of the possible “Guava Island” premiere happening only a day later, fans may be in for a real treat at this year’s festival. Childish Gambino is a huge star by himself but when you add Rihanna to the equation, things get taken up a notch. Who knows what the two clever and innovative artists have planned for fans at the upcoming 2019 Coachella festival but one thing is for certain, it’s going to be epic.
The Coachella 2019 festival is less than a week away and with so much excitement already surrounding the event, it’s going to be an event to remember.
