Everything that you could hope for, and more.

As you can tell, I'm not German. I don't even speak German. However, I purchased this DVD from the German website because it is UNAVAILABLE in any English speaking country (US, UK, Australia, and so on). I emailed the English language Amazon and they sent me back a full guide telling me step by step how to order. Top marks Amazon.
For anybody who is in the same boat, this version has an excellent ENGLISH LANGUAGE sound track. What's more, its 100% UNCUT. That's right. This DVD contains a full an uncensored English language version of the movie.
The sound on this DVD is great. It's not only in English, but it's good English. It's about the same as the RAI English dub, which is to say that it is about 10 times better than the censored US dub. The voices might be a little different to what you're used to (Layla, for example has a southern accent), but it's still a good quality sound track for a children's cartoon. All of the songs are in English, too. They won't win any prizes but they are still well done, none the less.
The graphics are a little mixed. The animation is super smooth and sharp. No corners have been cut, and the motion is very fluid and the physics were well done on all of the characters. The backgrounds are also of an extremely high quality. Almost cinema quality, in fact. The only let down is that he character's facial movements are overly simple. The backgrounds are Disney quality, but the mouth movements, and facial details are more Bratz (OK, a bit better)/made for TV.
There are no added extras on the DVD itself (other than the English language sound track, of course). It's have liked some sing alongs or something, but I guess that you can't have everything.
The film itself is everything that I hoped it was. The story is imaginative and emotional, the dialog is solid and not too cheesy, and the plot finally resolved the fate of Blooms parents. It also finally codifies the fate of the three ancestral witches.
While the film stays true to the plot of the series it appears to completely write Baltor/Valtor out of the picture. There are several flashbacks to the final battle for Domino/Sparkz but no references to him whatsoever.
Oh, and the film is very very cute. You're kids will absolutely love this. Even if they are not fans of the series this is a must for any fairy fan.
There is no cursing and no blood (or gross/naughty jokes), but there is a little fantasy sword fighting and some mild peril, and Bloom does cry a bit because she is afraid that she will never find her parents, but it's nothing that even a small child could not handle, though (It's no more scary than the series). I'd have no qualms about letting my children see this. It's less scary than the Little Mermaid or any other Disney.
It's not too bad for slightly older audiences, either, it's not too cutesy or too childish for older girls, though older boys may get bored. If your daughter likes pink, or cute Anime she will love this into her teens.
If you love Winx then definitely buy this. contact your English language Amazon and they will tell you how to order form the German site. I ordered using a Visa credit card which they accepted with no problems. Though the postage made it a bit expensive.
ONe last think, to change to English just use the language function on your remote. The Gemran for language is Spreckenz, or something similar. There are only two options on the menu. you can't miss it.
