A MAN gave his girlfriend a fairytale Disney proposal after spending six months redesigning the end of the movie Sleeping Beauty.
Lee Loechler, from Massachusetts, worked with an illustrator to insert himself and his girlfriend Sthuthi David into the final scene of the 1959 classic.
In December, Lee took his unsuspecting girlfriend to watch a screening of her favourite Disney animation.
Lee and Sthuthi were sat on the front row of the cinema, and unknown to her, their friends and family were hidden behind them in the dark.
When the final scene started to play, as Prince Philip kisses Sleeping Beauty, Sthuthi looked puzzled when Aurora looked different to her usual self.
Sthuthi gradually clocked that the character resembled herself with her brunette locks, and the cartoon prince looked remarkably like Lee.
Lee had digitally added in a moment in the film when his own-screen character pulls out a ring box and throws it in the air.
As this occurred in the movie, a real ring box was tossed over the screen into the waiting Lee’s hands, and he got down on one knee to reveal a sparkler inside.
Sthuthi looked amazed, as Lee said: “It’s not every day you get to propose to your childhood sweetheart, so I want to take my time. Savour this moment.
“I love you with all of my heart. Including its ventricles, atriums, valves,” reminding everyone in the room that his girlfriend is a cardiologist.
He added: “Sthuthi David, M.D, will you live happily ever after with me?” to which she replied: “Yes”.
As the delighted couple left the cinema, the bride-to-be was also left speechless when “Congratulations Sthuthi and Lee” was up in huge letters on the outside.
Lee uploaded the heartwarming video on YouTube on January 9, and it has racked up over 1.7million views.
He revealed that he had also prepared an alternate ending from the seven dwarfs from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, just in case her answer had been no.
Amazed viewers were quick to comment on the incredible proposal, with one saying: “This is going to blow up and make proposals standards deeply unfair for the rest of us. Amazing work.”
Another added: “This is fine, I'm just sobbing uncontrollably, don't mind me.”
