There are two schools of thought concerning time travel. The more traditional approach would be that when a time traveler goes back, he can change the events of history. In this version of time travel, there never was a time traveler anywhere in history until the first one moved from his own time period. This would be exemplified in Back to the Future.

The second theory would be that the events of time cannot be changed. The time traveler tries to prevent or cause something, but inadvertently causes history to repeat itself in the exact same manner or fails to change anything at all. The time traveler was always present at this point in time, as well as their starting point.

The Time Turner is based on the second theory. Buckbeak was saved the first time around, but they had to go back in time to be there. The Potter's deaths were in itself proof that no one used a time turner to save them, or no one succeeded in saving them when they did use the time turner. Therefor, it would be useless to try to use the time turner to save them, as it would be theoretically impossible, even with magic.

There is a reason they let a young student use the thing. In all reality it's just a toy.

The 'The Santa Clause' one applies to pretty much any Santa movie.

The Aladdin one doesn't make sense to me. He wasn't freaking out because Jasmine couldn't marry a prince he was freaking out because of the resposibilities that came along with being a prince. He started to have self doubts because he didn't think he was capable of becoming sultan. After he defeated Jafar he realized that he would be able to handle it and since Jasmine could only marry a prince he was going to re-wish himself one so that he could marry her but of course he does the right thing and sets the genie free like he promised.

For number two, the many worlds theory would solve that problem. When he went back in time, he slept with this mom, but a different mom. He slept with an exact copy of his mother but one parallel to his "present", just that happens to be back in time. When he went back in time, he created a different world with that decision, one where he did his mom, and one where he didn't. the one where he did not go back in time is the truth. Look it up online for clarification, for I am grossly oversimplifying.

All the time turners were destroyed during the battle in the Ministry of Magic at the end of the fifth book, so none of the significant deaths could have been prevented, as they all happened either after or during the battle.

Maybe Loraine wouldn't think much of Marty looking like that guy she met 30 years ago because to her knowledge and common logic that would be ******* impossible.

*5 Aladdin
Now, what I'm about to say is under the assumption that whoever made this is wondering where one of the wishes went. When Aladdin is thrown into the water, Genie says something along the lines of, "AL! Just wish yourself back on land!" But Aladdin can't, because his mouth is gagged. Genie then says, "I'll take that as a wish!" And transports him to land.

In the Harry Potter one, they hadn't lost a friend yet, unless they were to try to figure out how far back to go to save the original Order of the Phoenix, which they didn't even know existed, and Hermoinie turns hers back inat the end of that year. Then in book five they accidentally destroy all the ministry's time turners when they are being pursued by death-eaters. Why other people didn't use them before that, is they were highly regulated by the ministry to keep people from messing with the natural order ie saving their friends who should have died

Not to mention if they used it to stop Voldimort it would just create a paradox since no voldimort means there would be no reason to go back in time to stop him.

I thought J.K. Rowling wrote into the fifth book that all of the time-turners had been destroyed in the fiasco at the Ministry. If they no longer existed they couldn't be used.

ok get this im only saying something about the toy story part of the post   
   
He thinks he is on a unkwown planet. so when the kid (sorry forgot his name )comes in he just mimics what the other inhabitents are doing, playing "dead" in order to survive the attack if this giant creature that could easily kill
