Now even Muggles can see them chasing the Golden Snatch on a Nimbus 2000.
This is because Snapchat presents Harry Potter fans with a 3D Bitmoji lens that celebrates their digital doppelgangers in the robes of Hogwarts' homes
To cast this AR spell on your Snapchat wand, just long press the camera view to pull up the Lens carousel and scroll to the Harry Potter icon. Then place your cartoon image in your area with the rear-facing camera on your smartphone. No sorting hat is needed to choose between Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff; Just tap the screen to change your loyalty. However, you must ensure that the Bitmoji app is linked to your Snapchat account.
The experience serves to enhance the appetite of Harry Potter fans for the release of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite the upcoming location-based AR game of Niantic
Snapchat makes a little out of habit with the birth of fictional characters from Warner Bros. Earlier this year, the app marked Superman 80. Birthday with a 3D Bitmoji scene.
Maybe next year we will experience a Godzilla AR experience for the monster's 65th Anniversary (and the new movie)? Given the speed with which film studios produce AR content to promote their films, I would say anything but certain.
