It’ll also free to stream on this link for 18 hours after its launch.
Amazon, who bid on the rights to the film while still in production, also released a special trailer for the film on Instagram. You can check that out in the player below.
Described as “an expansion of Glover’s idea of freedom [in] creative and business terms,” the film is directed by Glover’s longtime collaborator Hiro Murai, who has directed episodes of Atlanta as well as music videos for Glover’s alter-ego, Childish Gambino, including his game-changing smash hit, “This Is America.” The screenplay was written by Donald’s brother, Stephen, who’s both a writer and executive producer on Atlanta. It’s based on a story by Royalty. The film stars Letitia Wright (Black Panther) and Nonso Anozie (Cinderella).
“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.
