Ex Cappa is a spell of unknown effect[1].


  • "Ex cappa" is Latin, meaning "from the hat".
  • "Ex cappa" is a near-homophone of "escapa", which in several Romance languages is a present indicative or affirmative imperative form of the verb "escapar" (to escape) — which, given the context, seems fitting.

Behind the scenes

  • In early drafts of the eighth film, Hermione Granger used this spell to try to notify the dragon that it was free, to no avail[1].
