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.
There 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.”
