Lots of little men in this thread, the internet and the population in general.

Jesus Christ dude, I'm not trying to measure dicks. I just meant "little" as in "insignificant". You had to get all uppity and matter-of-factly, acting like your lone opinion was empirical evidence.

Anyway, I also didn't know anyone's names, outside of Jyn's. I guess you're supposed to buy the toys and learn them that way. The names are intentionally weird-sounding, and so unless you know them ahead of time, anytime someone says his name it just sounds like mumbo-jumbo.
Which makes it a whole lot like the original Trilogy.

I found most of them memorable and cared vey much when they died, although I will concede that it had more to do with the actor's performances than the writing.

Not necessarily. The OT had easy-to-name characters like Luke, Ben, Solo, and Chewie.
Here we have, uh, Saw? Chirrut ╬mwe?

I was referring to the fact that many fans only knew the more obscure characters names after they got the action figures.
And since the whole point of the movie is that it's populated by obscure characters, I think it makes sense.
