THE LAST SPELL:Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2” closes out a decade of Hogwarts in Hollywood. Hero Complex is counting down to the release of the final film in the magical franchise with exclusive interviews and photos. Wednesday: Hero Complex debuts a new Patronus application from Warner Bros.

Last month, Hero Complex debuted a Parseltongue translator application from Warner Bros. Now, just in time for the final film’s theatrical release, we’ve got your first crack at a new “What’s Your Patronus?” application.

harry potter gallery Harry Potter app: Find your personal PatronusThere are few spells more helpful to Harry Potter than “expecto patronum,” the charm that conjures a magical shield against against Dementors and other dark forces. Harry learns the spell from Professor Remus Lupin during his third year at Hogwarts and uses it to save himself and his godfather Sirius Black from Dementors in the Forbidden Forest. In “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,” Harry teaches the spell to Dumbledore’s Army in the Room of Requirement, telling the students they need to focus on a happy memory to produce the charm.

A fully formed, corporeal Patronus takes the form of an animal; Harry’s Patronus is a stag, like his father’s. Hermione‘s is an otter, and Ron‘s is a dog. You can find yours through a new application on the Warner Bros. website, as well as on Facebook. So, as Harry Potter told Dumbledore’s Army, clear your mind, focus on something happy, and “make it a powerful memory, the happiest you can remember.”

  8. Louisa says:

    This sounds neat….

  9. antonio says:

    There are so many inaccuracies in this article or assumptions, nowhere does it say James' patronus was a stag. Harry did not use it to fend off dementors in the forbidden forest to save sirius, it was by the lake. Nowhere are we told that it wards off anything other than dementors

    Wish people would get it right.

    • Mia says:

      If you read the books, it is implied that when James was a teenager his patronus was a stag,

    • Mia says:

      James Potter"Stag"James' Animagus form was also that of a stag.

      Even the HP website explains that the patronus is formed from the animgus form, please see above copied from the site. Thank you

    • HPmania says:

      http://www.accio-quote.org/articles/2007/0730-blo… No denying James Potter's patronus is a stag in this interview, the interviewer assumes it and JK doesn't deny it.. It's not mentioned because it's the only thing that makes sense, really. And in Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them it is stated that the Patronus charm is the only known defense against the dark creatures Lethifolds.

      Wish people would get it right.

      Oh, and the patronus generator? A click and "YOUR PATRONUS IS…". Disappointed.

    • Jinx says:

      Actually IT DOES- Both in the movie and the book- it's the reason why Harry has the patronus he does- BTW- in the last book- Ron states that he thought the patronus he follows to the water was harry's until harry notes that his patronus has horns.
      The patronus was also used to send messages (as during harry's birthday party, the wedding warning, the 'everyone is alright' message from ron's father……

      Duh- wish people would get it right.

    • Toni says:

      if you read the books It implies James's was a stag. If you remember in Prisoner of Azkaban in the book, Sirius tells Harry that James's amamagus was a stag.
      Even the HP website explains that the patronus is formed from the animgus form, please see above copied from the site.
      And Yes!!! Harry's patronus, the Stag saved Sirius and himself (movie) and Hermione too (book) at the lake in HP3- Prisoner of azkaban.
      What were you doing, sleeping?

    • Kat says:

      And what's by the lake? Oh, right. The forest. So technically, he's on the outskirts of the forest by the lake. Which is still in the forest.

      Danggg – Wish people would get it right.

    • tony says:

      James's patronus is a stag watch the harry potter and the prisoner of azkaban or read the books j.k. rowling stated this information many times in her books, and the dementors attack was in the forest by the lake, watch the movie, i know it's diifrent from the book but not wrong because the writer didn't say if it was in or out the forest this part of the lake and the movie scene was made on her approval, and also you are wrong again to say that the patronus charm works only on dementors, the author also says in the books that this charm is a defense against some dark creatures and one of them are dementors but it is the only charm known to work on dementors

      now i wish you got it right ;)

    • Christina says:

      well it can deliver things…. Like Snape's doe delivering the Gryffindor sword
      But I agree, I have seen a few sites say his was a stag but I think it is a mystery

  10. Zora says:

    It just says "Loading", it's not doing anything. I wish people wouldn't unveil some new app until it was thoroughly tested.

  11. Casey says:

    To be more precise, Ron's is a Jack Russel Terrier. They have been known to chase otters, which also eludes to Ron and Hermione's "chase".

  12. Tatyana says:

    Just one question. Where is the app???

  13. yessebel says:

    wao la reliquias de la muerte parte 2 se parece que esta de buena estoy anciosa por verla lastima k ya sea el fin me pone triste harry eres un gran chico me gustas mucho espero que el ballan muy bien

  29. Killah says:

    oh my goodness people! you have to click on the so called picture!!!!!!!!! stop complaining and just click around till something happens!
    I got the Terrier! Like Ron, but no matter how many times I do it I get the same thing! I guess programmed different for every account or something like that!

  30. Amelie says:

    I am a Swann !

  31. shelley says:

    it always gives out a stupid cat-I don't know about others, but I would think few would want theirs to be a cat, since it was Delores Umbridge's patronus form.

  32. Zack says:

    worked for me. my patronus is a Phoenix.

  33. Emily says:

    The graphics are cool and all but part of the image is cut off while it's playing. I can make out the sentence for the most part but I miss a couple words more or less. It could just be my computer but I dunno. I got the swan though. :) Like Cho's.

  34. Josef says:

    If it's not working for your, you're obviously not focusing hard enough on your happiest memory.

  35. nelly says:

  108. kinjal says:

    its nt working!

  109. CGIRL91 says:

    this is awesome! Though some of the words sound the same.

  110. Catie says:

    This is cool. Like the fact that no matter how many times you do it you get the same patronus

  111. Gay Aida says:

    i tried it TWICE and it is always HARE.. im always connected to Hare..argh! I'm like Luna

  112. Kong says:

    It's terrible anyways, completely at random. What's the point? I took it and got a rabbit first, and then a otter. WTF?

    Every other patronus quiz I've taken points towards me being a stag. Also, this quiz doesn't have enough animals, just the patronus of the main characters.

    I got a phoenix and, now that I think about it, it really fits in amazingly well with my personality. Like the Phoenix, my tears are very rare, I hardly ever cry, and I can find hope when all seems lost…

  128. Hermione says:

    For everybody who wants to use the app in English, here is the link: (MUST BE DONE ON PC OR REGULAR COMPUTER, NOT MOBILE)

    The link is: http://warnerbros.com/hp7b/patronus/uk/index.php
    Hope this helps! And if it doesn’t work, google warner brows patronus app us, click on the link, and simply change us to uk. (A little trick I found)
