Effect

Renders targets immobile and disables Muggles' burglar alarms

The Freezing Charm (Immobulus), according to Horace Slughorn, will disable a Muggle burglar alarm as it stops things from moving. The spell strikes resemblances to the Flame-Freezing Charm, which negates the effects of fire. Hermione Granger used the Freezing Charm on pixies after Gilderoy Lockhart set them loose and failed to stop them with Peskipiksi Pesternomi. In 1996, Horace Slughorn used the charm to freeze the burglar alarms of Muggle houses he stayed in. Later that year, Albus Dumbledore used this spell nonverbally on Harry Potter to stop the latter interfering with the former's death [1]. Kingsley Shacklebolt possibly used this spell nonverbally during the Battle of Hogwarts.

Behind the scenes
