    consider this: East Germany was communist. The Beast was a beast for punishing a man who took something he didn’t need. The Beast owned stuff and is presented as a capitalist. He becomes a man aber properly sharing (communism?) with Beauty. That explaines why Beautys family losing their wealth didn’t factor in, doesn’t it? I wouldn’t be surprised, if this point of view was why they decided on producing this movie, the DDR loved it’s propaganda

    Also, dealing with the sunken ship as well as the loss of wealth would put a focus on poverty and scarcity – the only thing the DDR had an abundance of – apart from Demon eyed girls, elephant beastmen and magic rings, of course.

    Cheers from Germany
