"The Disney+ live action Star Wars TV Series follows the adventures of a stoic bounty hunter and his child companion, but even after episode 4 fleshed-out these characters, viewers still don't know their names," says Sarah Bea Milner, adding: "The Mandalorian's name problem isn't limited to its main characters either; several other significant characters are either never given names, or their names are used so sparingly, audiences don't have the opportunity to learn them. Werner Herzog's menacing villain is only known as 'the Client.' Gina Carano's character, Cara Dune, is only named in passing, as is Dr Pershing, the cowardly scientist working for the Client. Given how important these characters may still prove to be, one would expect their names to be communicated more memorably." In fact, Jon Favreau's lack of names may be an ode to Clint Eastwood's Man With No Name trilogy.
