Emma Thompson has joined the ensemble cast of Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban,” currently shooting in the U.K. with helmer Alfonso Cuaron.

Thompson will play the ethereal and eccentric Professor of Divination Sybill Trelawney, known at Hogwarts’ School of Witchcraft & Wizardry for her somewhat questionable predictions.
