I looked on MM's website - no mention of language at all. Usually a good indicator that it is in German. After all they've done it countless times in the past, why not this time.

Where did you draw the info from - is it reliable?

MM and Saturn both often have insufficient information listed in my experience, regardless of release date, label or movie. And as this edition was just put up for pre-order a few days ago, I don't think the info will be updated until very close to or even after release date.

The info is from the other German site which usually is very accurate. It's highly unlikely that an English audio track would not be included.

Yes. The work on the Extended (regrading of the scenes, creating a German dub for them) is performed by a German label, Turbine - as is the packaging (which is btw approved by John Landis).
