Watch This Creative Sleeping Beauty-Inspired Proposal

A Filmmaker Edited the End of Sleeping Beauty For a Proposal That Is Simply Magical

Want to know how a proposal fit for a princess entails? Filmmaker Lee Loechler recently proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Sthuthi David, at a special screening of her favourite movie, Sleeping Beauty. Except for the most pivotal scene, Lee worked with illustrator Kayla Coombs to animate Sthuthi in Princess Aurora's place, and himself as Prince Phillip. To quote Lee, "It's not every day you get to propose to your high school sweetheart."

In hidden-camera footage, Sthuthi looked incredulous as she watched the altered scene. It was then that the animated version of Lee pulled out a ring box and tossed it, only for the box to miraculously land in real-life Lee's hands. The heartwarming details didn't end there: before saying "yes," Sthuthi noted how badly she felt for their fellow moviegoers — until she turned around and realised the theatre was actually filled with their friends and family!

"I thought there was something wrong with the movie."

"I thought there was something wrong with the movie," Sthuthi said in disbelief. She added, "That was so good!" Following the proposal, Lee wrote on Instagram, "The only thing better than seeing the smartest person I know completely dumbfounded was knowing we'd get to live happily ever after together." Watch the entire, utterly magical moment above.
