Can anyone confirm for me that the French animated film LA REINE SOLEIL (aka Princess of the Sun) has English audio on the German PAL DVD? I found some photos of the back cover and it does show German or English DD 5.1 audio. But on other sites and on other forums just say it's German or French audio. Can anyone confirm the true audio specs of this DVD???

It's unbelievable how lousy European DVD sites are with confirming DVD or Blu-ray specs.

Sorry the page is in German but you can easily see the audio track listing.

The manufactures page indicates German and French audio.

So the back of the dvd cover is wrong? I'm going to write to that company.

Usually German DVDs don't contain English audio if the movies original language isn't English. Many times there are rights issues and if you have an English track you might have forced German subtitles. This DVD should really contain a German and a French track, that would be the most common option. I guess writing them is the best way to go.

I found an english-subtitled anamorphic dvd of this film from Canada, woo hoo! The video quality is very good and the French stereo sounds like an active DD 5.1!
