The official novelization of the film is released today. It was written by Elizabeth Rudnick, but her name does not appear on the front cover at all, and the credit on the title page is as such: This suggests to me that it basically transposes the script to a prose format without doing much fleshing out. I'm curious, but I definitely don't want to read it until after the film comes out so that the film itself is as fresh as possible for me, so I'm holding off buying it for now. (The title page is available on Amazon's Look Inside feature, which is where I found Rudnick's name.) There is still no announcement about the release of the soundtrack. It's crazy to me that the movie is coming out next month, in about seven weeks or so, and the soundtrack hasn't been announced/detailed/listed pre-order yet. It would seem to me that since this is a Disney musical well-known for its songs, the soundtrack will be one of the most successful merchandise items. I don't know what they're doing by withholding information about it when you can already order stuff that will probably sell way fewer copies, but there you go.
