"...immobilising two pixies at once with a clever Freezing Charm and stuffing them back into their cage"
—Hermione Granger's use of the charm in her Defence Against the Dark Arts class[src]

The Freezing Charm (Immobulus[2]) is a spell which immobilises living targets.[3] It can also, according to Horace Slughorn, be used to disable Muggle burglar alarms.[4]

Known uses


The incantation is derived from Latin immobilis meaning "immobile, unmoving".

Behind the scenes

  • In the second film, Hermione freezes all of the pixies at the same time instead of just two.
  • Despite the books and video games giving no incantation, the word is shown to be Immobilus in the film.
