Real Fake History has launched with Star Wars: The Battle of Endor.
This 10-episode series parody of the History Channel, Real Fake History has produced these “Ken Burns style,” shorts, recounting the greatest fictional battles and most inspiring stories in movies, TV, and video games from Endor to Gotham City, The Battle of Castle Black, The Massacre at the House of Blue Leaves, and six more (a complete list of the episodes with descriptions is after the jump).
Narrated by Phil Morris (Seinfeld, Smallville, Green Lantern The Animated Series), each program delivers the never before seen tales of those who witnessed these defining fictional moments. A new episode will launch every Tuesday.
