“Real Fake History,” a new online series from Machinima, looks at great historical battles in nerd fiction, and gives them the full PBS documentary treatment (for a few minutes, anyway). Narrated by veteran voice-over actor Phil Morris, future episodes will include the likes of Kill Bill and Starcraft.

But first – Return of the Jedi. Rebel pilots remember it well, even if they still don’t understand what the hell Nien Nunb was saying.
