  Potter 3: Trelawney rumours true!
Updated 10 October 2003, 11.00
Emma Thompson
British actress Emma Thompson will play Professor Trelawney in the third Harry Potter film, Prisoner of Azkaban, ending rumours about the role.

Director Alfonso Cuaron said: "I am very excited to work with Emma. She brings such life and spirit to the characters she portrays."

There are reports that Azkaban will be a lot darker than the other films.

And, excitingly, pre-production has already started on fourth film, Goblet of Fire.

The film should be out in June 2004, and Cuaron has said it should feel a lot more up-to-date than the first two films.
