Elsewhere, limited art prints will arrive courtesy of Art You Grew Up With, Paper Projects has sticker packs and Alligator Books is releasing activity and colouring books based on the film.

Justin and the Knights of Valour branded activity pages, posters and covermounts will also appear in Kennedy Publishing's popular children’s magazines Kraze Club and Busy Time.

“Courageous tales of knights, wizards and dragons will always be popular with young boys and the film has all the ingredients to make it a hit with families,” says Hannah Mungo, head of UK licensing at Entertainment One.

“Licensees signed to date have recognized the commercial potential of the property and we’re delighted to have them on board.”

eOne is backing the release of Justin and the Knights of Valour with a heavyweight marketing campaign that includes national TV advertising across key terrestrial, digital and VOD channels starting from the end of August through to September and significant outdoor advertising on buses, national rail stations, shopping centres and playhouses.

Press, online and radio advertising will build on this and the film will also be pushed by promotions with Little Chef restaurants and national children’s play centre chain Wacky Warehouse.

Licensed products will hit the shelves of grocers, High Street stores, independent shops and online retailers in early September to coincide with the launch of the film

The $30m CGI movie lands in cinemas on September 13th and actors voicing characters in the film include Antonio Banderas, Julie Walters, Rupert Everett and David Walliams.
