There are a few filters trending on Instagram, and none of them are easy to find. But we figured out how to get them. If you want to see which Disney or Pokemon or Harry Potter character you are, here’s what you need to do.

What are the Disney, Pokemon, and Harry Potter Instagram filters?

Instagram has long offered augmented reality filters, even user-created ones. Filters are effects that augment a user’s face and or surroundings during a video recording. At the moment, three user-created Instagram filters are making headlines and going viral on social media. They’re called the “Which Disney character are you?”, “What Pokemon are you?”, and “Which Harry Potter character are you?” filters.

Without any user input, these filters essentially serve up a Disney character or Pokemon or Harry Potter character. They’re meaningless, of course, in determining who you really are, but over the past couple weeks, they’ve inundated social media feeds – not just on Instagram, either. Some users are cross-posting their results, complete with their live reactions, to TikTok and Twitter and Facebook and elsewhere.

How to get the ‘Which Disney character are you?’ Instagram filter

Instead of making an online quiz for you to try, Instagram user @arnopartissimo made a filter you can simply open in Instagram to find your inner Disney character. The actual filter cycles through just about every Disney prince, princess, and villain before landing on a random character, like Mulan, Cinderella, and The Little Mermaid. And you can record the entire experience and share it for others to see.

  1. Open the Instagram app on your phone.
  2. Go to @arnopartissimo‘s profile. You may need to briefly follow them.

  7. With the camera facing you, press the record button when you see the filter appear.
  8. Wait for it to scan your face and automatically pick a Disney character.
  9. Stop recording when you desire.

How to get the ‘What Pokemon are you?’ Instagram filter

The Pokemon filter, created by Instagram user @hughesp1, works just like the Disney one: You pose for a recorded video while a slot machine-like effect spins over their head and a not-very-scientific algorithm guesses which Pokemon is most like you. The Pokemon filter seems to only include the 150 pokemon from the Indigo League series. But all your favourites should be there, including Pikachu and Charmander.

How to get the ‘Which Harry Potter character are you?’ Instagram filter

The Harry Potter filter by @syilers is like the Disney and Pokemon ones, but it will reveal who you are from the Wizarding World. It’s completely random, so no worries if you’re Voldemort. It includes everyone from The Boy Who Lived to Ron, Hermione, and others.
