So poor Professor Trelawney... or was she... Yes she was looked down on for her choice of teaching, but, Dumbledore knew better! He could have let the other teachers know that she had in fact made a prediction. That she was not a fraud. And after her second prediction, shouldn't Dumbledore provided he with protection(s) that she should have known and NOT known about. Was Albus so short sighted that even he couldn't see past the tip of his nose?

Dumbledore isn't perfect but I think his decision on Prof Trelawney was a good one. I love her quirkiness :)) I think she's not a bad person, hopefully......

Dumbledore

We've got to remember, If Voldemort killed having heard only half of the prophecy, can you imagine how badly he wanted needed to hear the rest? Voldemort would have used the Cruciatus Curse on Trelawney to force the rest of the prophecy out of her, before he relented and killed her. Of course, Dumbledore knew this... And so he hired Trelawney more to protect her than for her to teach. That’s why when Delores Umbridge sacked Sybill Trelawnsy, Dumbledore intervened and made sure she did not have to leave the Hogwarts castle. For her own protection, though Sybill did not know that. It was enough for the Headmaster to know.

      Jude Law will voice Dumbledore in a new in audiobook for Harry Potter spin-off The Tales Of Beedle The Bard.
       
       
       
      Warwick Davis, who played Professor Filius Flitwick in the Harry Potter films, will also lend his voice to the audio recording, as well as Bonnie Wright and Evanna Lynch.
      The collection of stories, which are mentioned within the Harry Potter books and described as being "translated from the original runes by Hermione Granger", includes The Tale Of The Three Brothers, which played a crucial role in the plot of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
       

       
      The wizarding tales are accompanied by explanatory notes from Hogwarts headmaster Professor Albus Dumbledore.
      The notes will be read by Law, who plays a young Dumbledore in the Fantastic Beasts film series, while Davis  will read the story The Wizard And The Hopping Pot.
      Noma Dumezweni, who played Hermione Granger in the original West End and Broadway runs of play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, will read The Tale Of The Three Brothers, while and Jason Isaacs, who played Lucius Malfoy in the Potter films, will read The Warlock's Hairy Heart.
       

       
      Warwick Davis, Evanna Lynch and Bonnie Wright will all be involved too
       

       
      Evanna Lynch, who was Luna Lovegood, voices The Fountain Of Fair Fortune and Wright, best-known for playing Ginny Weasley, reads Babbitty Rabbitty And Her Cackling Stump.
      Sally Mortemore, who played Hogwarts librarian Madam Pince, reads Rowling's introduction.
      The Tales Of Beedle The Bard was originally handwritten and illustrated by Rowling as a limited edition of only seven copies, one of which was sold at auction in 2007 to raise money for charity.

      All good things must come to an end. And unfortunately, that includes Netflix’s The Crown. Creator Peter Morgan has revealed the hit show will end after the fifth season.
      “At the outset, I had imagined The Crown running for six seasons, but now that we have begun work on the stories for season five, it has become clear to me that this is the perfect time and place to stop,” said Morgan. “I’m grateful to Netflix and Sony for supporting me in this decision.”
       

       
      The show has also cast their final Queen Elizabeth: Imelda Staunton, the Harry Potter actress will succeed Claire Foy (seasons 1 and 2) and Olivia Colman (seasons 3 and 4) in the royal role. The site wrote that Morgan had wanted to go to six seasons, but that’s not the case anymore. Cindy Holland, who is the vice president of Original Content at Netflix, also said, “The first three seasons of
       

       
      The Crown defined an era, and I know the upcoming fourth season will build further on that success.” She continued, “It’s a stunning example of award-winning entertainment, created in the UK and loved by millions of fans around the world. I fully support Peter Morgan’s creative decision and am excited to see how he, Imelda Staunton and the cast and crew of Season 5, bring this landmark series to a fitting and spectacular end.”
       


      Staunton, meanwhile, said in her own statement, “As an actor it was a joy to see how both Claire Foy and Olivia Colman brought something special and unique to Peter Morgan’s scripts. I am genuinely honoured to be joining such an exceptional creative team and to be taking The Crown to its conclusion.”

      Fantastic Beasts 3 is  to be released in two parts with the first one being set to release in sometime in November 2021 with Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro confirmed to be the main shooing location. J.K. Rowling herself teased last year. While we don’t yet know the exact year of the film’s setting, Rowling’s tweet indicates it will be during the 1930s.
       

       
      Set to return are:
      Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander Jude Law as Albus Dumbledore Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald Ezra Miller (Credence / Aurelius Dumbledore) Alison Sudol (Queenie Goldstein) Dan Fogler (Jacob Kowalski) Katherine Waterston (Tina Goldstein)  
      Wizarding World (that replaced Pottermore), announced Fantastic Beasts 3 has been officially greenlit, “with production confirmed to start in Spring 2020.” There was also a report that the next movie may include a lot more of Hogwarts and Jude Law's Albus Dumbledore, which may have been a hint to the third movie adding more emphasis on what Harry Potter fans like.
       
      When will we see Fantastic Beasts 3 trailer?
      We probably won’t get a teaser until early 2021, with a full trailer following sometime after that.
