That's according to apparently-leaked set photos from the Disney+ TV series, which appear to show Death Troopers alongside the standard Storm Troopers (via MakingStarWars.net).
If you remember, the black-clad Death Troopers appeared in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and this new information suggests a neat link to the Star Wars spin-off movie.
Rogue One is set many years before the events of the TV show, taking place directly before Episode IV: A New Hope.
Earlier this week, it emerged that Narcos' Pedro Pascal is in talks to join the much-anticipated Star Wars series. He may also be joined by Deadpool's Gina Carano.
The Mandalorian will be set between Return of the Jedi and Episode VII: The Force Awakens, following "a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic".
However, it will follow a new Mandalorian character following the popularity of cult Mandalorian characters Boba and Jango Fett.
On top of that, a number of big directors have signed on to helm episodes, including Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates) and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok).
The Mandalorian is set to premiere on Disney+ next year.
