According to Hollywood Reporter, “Guava Island” is produced by Glover’s alter ego, Childish Gambino, and is directed by Hiro Murai, the man behind Gambino’s “This is America” and “Sober” music videos.

“We live in paradise but none of us actually have the time or the means to live here,” Glover says in the new teaser trailer, which begins with the sweet strums of a guitar and ends with what looks like a hostage situation.
