'Real Fake History; New Documentary Relives The Battle of Endor from ‘Return of the Jedi’

From slashfilm Some film franchises and television shows have a large enough mythology and universe that entire encyclopedias (or more commonly Wikis today) have been written in an attempt to chronicle every facet of the world that some of our favorite stories unfold.Star Wars, Star Trek, Game of Thrones, Lost and more all have expansive and rich histories.

Now a new web series from Machinima is diving into some of the milestone moments of our favorite films and TV shows with Real Fake History. Created in the style of a History Channel show or Ken Burns documentary, these documentary shorts examine the fictional wars, events and stories of films and television. The first episode has just gone live taking a look at the pivotal Battle of Endor, the fight which brought down the Empire, in Return of the Jedi.

Okay, I like the idea of this and I love that they got those actors for it, but that's kind of a one-joke pony. The entire battle of Endor is all about those guys in the back seat? Hmm.

I wonder how hard it was to track those guys down. Probably not hard at all because some geeks already did it.
