Brave Related Merchandise (Updated)

With the upcoming release of Brave on June 22, there will be a plethora of Brave-related merchandise coming out. The Pixar Post wrote a great article on some toys that are already available. There will also be a number of books, starting as soon as next week. First up are books targeted at younger people. The following books are all being released on May 15:
While not a book on Brave, the La Luna picture book, written and illustrated by the film's director Enrico Casarosa, will also be released on May 15. La Luna will be shown with Brave when it is released to theaters next month.

Next up is The Art of Brave, scheduled for release on May 30, written by Dreamworks story artist Jenny Lerew. From the artwork and trailers that have already been released, I'm sure this will be an amazing book. Throw in a preface by John Lasseter and forewords by both Brenda Chapman and Mark Andrews, and this is a must-have book for any Pixar fan.

Besides books and toys, there is also the action/adventure Brave: The Video Game, coming out on June 19.  And the soundtrack for Brave is also coming out on the 19th. Scotsman Patrick Doyle composed the score for Brave, having also done the scores for Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Thor, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Nanny McPhee.

UPDATE: One note with these books and soundtrack, they will likely contain spoilers. Posts have been floating around Twitter the last couple of days regarding images being leaked from The Art of Brave containing spoilers. And oftentimes, soundtrack titles may give things away. Enrico Casarosa tweeted that the La Luna book has spoilers and requested people not read the book until after seeing the film. On the other had, Elsa Chang tweeted that A Friend for Merida does not contain any spoilers.

UPDATE: Just today, Disney released a trailer for Brave: The Video Game. Thanks to The Pixar Times for posting this!
