    I hope we realize that HP doesn’t matter to Rowling as much as it does to us. Obv it’s a world she created with the whims of her subconscious, but to her it’s just a story; not a history.

    Didn’t mcgonnagol have a time me turner that she gave to hermione maybe she used it to go back in time

    Time turner cause you know she gave hermione which might be passed down from generations. I mean it looks pretty old.

    I love hearing how Americans pronounce Urquart. 😂

  • Minura Githmal Jinadasa

    Jon there is a explanation for that other than that. Professor McGonagall didn't said that she was an assistant teacher. She said years of teaching. Can't she be assistant for 30+ years.

    What if she just ages slowly when in cat form, so she could have been born a long time prior to the date you figured out.

  • Carl Rood
    Carl Rood 4 days ago +1

    Here's my problem with this theory. Aren't there restrictions about time turners? How would she hide that she was a time traveler and get a position at Hogwarts under her own name? It's not like Dumbledore was headmaster at the time and could pull strings. How would a witch with no history be allowed to teach at Hogwarts in 1915? She couldn't even prove she graduated.

    Did you really not mention the fact that hermoine got the time turner she got from professor McGonagall as well. at the beginning of the semester like she said. im later but still

  • Andrew Hubbard
    Andrew Hubbard 5 days ago +1

    It's an interesting idea, but I doubt it will turn out to be the case. I hope I am wrong because the loss of continuity that Minerva's presence causes really breaks things for me.

  • mysticfaerie
    mysticfaerie 5 days ago +1

    She's a time cop. She went back in time to prevent someone else using a time turner to help Grindewald. During her assignments at Hogwarts she realized her true passion lay with teaching future generations.

    It’s most likely Rowling just made a mistake. She’s not perfect. She makes lots of them. It’s ok.

  • Sanskar Srivastava

    A problem with the theory is that I do not think that Minerva and Albus would be that close just after she joined the school as a teacher, even though they opened up about their past to each other.

  • CHiRiCATRi
    CHiRiCATRi 10 days ago

    I actually thought about this when the movie came out and decided not to watch this video since I thought your idea was the same as mine but now that I finally watched this I found out your idea was different. So how I think it went:
    In the books they said Minerva is about 50. But in the movies she is much older. So that's why in books she isn't even born then but in the movies if you consider how old she was, and count backwards, it actually matches up. I think they went with this age, since JK Rowling had approved Maggie Smith to the role in Potters, so it would have been weird in Fantastic beasts that an old professor wouldn't have been there.

  • Blast Burn
    Blast Burn 11 days ago

    Is this the reason why she’s old in the movies? Because if we take a principle from a certain time-travel paradox, then if she was about 20 years old when she went back in time to the 1920’s, then by the time she returns the old-fashioned way, she should be in her 90’s, and I don’t know about you, but she doesn’t look a day over 60.

    Why wasn’t mcgonagall’s mom not an obscurial?
    Didn’t she have to surpress her magic too?

    • Channy Whocares
      Channy Whocares 16 days ago +1

      I think she chose to surpress it to be with her loved one than rahter being by someone who should love you. Every obscurial we know off has been abused to a degree by a person set to his or her side that should take care of them.

  • Fer de la Cruz
    Fer de la Cruz 19 days ago

    Hey, professor McGonagall taught Neville´s grandmother. This can be inferred from chapter 9 of Half-Blood Prince, when she tells Neville that his grandmother failed in Charms like it was yesterday: "Take Charms and I shall drop Augusta a line reminding her that just because she failed her Charms O.W.L., the subject is not necessarily worthless." This could very well have been in 1927: Augusta was 16?, making her 47 when she had Neville´s mom Alice, in 1960? It´s possible. That time-turner theory is viable, and I think professor McGonagall simply lied to Toadface. Or maybe she just tweaked the truth a little, as back in 1927 she might have been doing a magical internship or teaching apprenticeship without having become a full professor. Or, following up on Lalo Martins´ theory below, a brilliant 17-year-old McGonagall might have been teaching already in 1927. If this is so, she was born in 1910 and she´s 86 in 1996. She could very well be 86 when she´s cowardly stunned by four death eaters. "At her age," cries--I believe--madam Pomfrey. BTW, you´d give Slytherin house a much better reputation but, still, I think you would do well in Ravenclaw. Take it from a proud would-be Hufflepuff.

    Maybe Minerva just lied? Answering the question doesn't guarantee she gave an honest answer anyway.

      +Kakuzato Jr
      Yeah you should kinda suspect knowing Dumbeldore and Flamel being 200+ years old that they might now always tell the truth those magical Ladies and Gentelmen right? But what would her reasoning be for lying about her age?

  • jr jr
    jr jr 20 days ago

    in the movie she is rather skittish and cant control the students which means she is not the aged witch that could help him. this is more likely McGonagall still 19 working at the Ministry and trialing out teaching as a profession

  • Thanos Skillet
    Thanos Skillet 20 days ago +1

    She is actually our beloved teacher because there's a deleted scene of the film where Albus calls her "Minerva".
    Also time traveling doesn't make sense because Albus was Minerva's Transfiguration teacher and that's after 1945, so Minerva should be 11 after 1945.

    The time turner theory sounds legit. The proof is in prisoner of azkaban. Where did Hermione get the time turner? From Minerva MacGonagall. So it's very possible and even true that MacGonagall used time turner she had to get back in time and help Dumbledore and Newt to defeat Grindewald.
