Donald Glover Secret Movie
Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino is a multi-talented guy. There is no denying that. His Grammy, Emmy and Golden Globe are testament to that. We can only think that he might be eyeing an Oscar next. Reportedly he has been working on a secret movie. There have been reports that Rihanna is also in the movie. Back in August, a picture of Donald and Rihanna circulated around the internet. In which, both are posing for the camera. Rihanna is all smiles while Donald has a tensed look.

No further facts came through. Everyone sort of forgot about it. But Donald Glover did not.
The PHAROS Festival
So, Donald Glover is performing as his alter ego, Childish Gambino at the PHAROS Festival in Auckland, New Zealand. PHAROS is a three-day virtual reality experience. The first PHAROS festival happened in 2016 at Joshua Tree National Park in California. Childish Gambino then previewed music from his album, Awaken, My Love! Launched on Nov. 23, this year’s PHAROS event is going in full flow.
With fans gathering at the festival, Childish Gambino thought that it will be a great idea to reveal his secret movie’s teaser trailer. The movie teaser trailer was showcased at the event. Captured by a fan, the trailer looks full of adventure.

Donald Glover and Rihanna in Childish Gambino Movie
The trailer is very interesting. It starts with Donald’s character playing music. Rihanna’s character walks in on him slowly. She teases him a little. He teases her back. He then rushes off to something he’s late for. We see his character running around the city to the beat of tribal music. There is supposedly a bad guy. Some violence, some music and an iconic line by Donald’s character strikes,
“We live in paradise but none of us actually have the time or the means to live here”
The film’s name was not mentioned in the credits. The credits mention Donald Glover, Rihanna, Letitia Wright from Black Panther and Nonso Anozie in the cast. Hiro Murai is the director. He also directed the video for the sensational song, This is America. The film is a Childish Gambino production.
