Produces bright light
Lumos Maxima is the incantation of the strongest variation of the Wand-Lighting Charm. It produces a blinding flash of light from the very tip of the wand; it can be thrown far off of the wand, illuminating the surrounding area for several minutes after its initial casting, floating in mid-air, before darkening.
Behind the scenes
- "Lumos Maxima" was used to introduce The Wizarding World of Harry Potter to fans by illuminating Hogwarts Castle.
- This spell was created for the third film, and does not make an appearance in any of the novels.
