Donald Glover and Rihanna’s super-secret Guava Island will be unveiled on Saturday — for free.

The movie, which also stars Letitia Wright and Nonso Anozie, will be available on Amazon Prime Video beginning Saturday, April 13, at 12:01 a.m. PT and via this link for its first 18 hours of live streaming capabilities.

The film, which premiered Thursday at Coachella — one day before Glover’s musical alter-ego, Childish Gambino, performed — is “an expansion of Glover’s idea of freedom” in “creative and business terms,” according to Amazon.

Filmed in Cuba, Guava Island is directed by Glover’s longtime collaborator Hiro Murai, who has directed episodes of Atlanta and music videos for Childish Gambino, including “This Is America,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“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,” Glover said in a statement.
