A team of skydivers brought the magic back for “Harry Potter” fans, playing a high-flying recreation of the Wizarding World sport of Quidditch in a widely-seen video that even got the attention of series author J.K. Rowling.

The group may not have been wizards or witches, but the “muggles” did an admirable job of bringing the fantasy sport — which has been adopted into a real-world game for non-magical players — to life.

The skydivers squared off in a mid-air bout that included broomsticks, the Quaffle and goals, the viral video showed.

There was no word, however, whether the seeker caught the Snitch to formally end the game.

Rowling apparently approved of the demonstration, as she retweeted a video of the match to her millions of followers.

The video, which has been viewed millions of times across various social media platforms, was a public relations stunt for a Colombian communications company, according to CNN.
