The two guides of the 2014 feature-length special were intended for release on July 31st.
Both will come out almost a month later in late August on the day of the last screenings at Vue cinemas.
It now allows UK fans the chance to avoid spoilers from the special in book format before the DVD release.
The Tale of the Brave Storybook and Sticker Books from Egmont hit UK book shelves at the new date of August 28th.
