Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, the youngest of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s children, will make her film debut alongside her mother in 2014’s “Maleficent“. She’ll be the first of their children to appear in a movie.
The movie is a re-telling of the classic “Sleeping Beauty” tale, but with a twist: this time, it will be told from the perspective of Maleficent, Princess Aurora’s mortal enemy. And while similar takes have been done on fairy tales–such as Gregory Maguire’s “Wicked”–fans are looking forward to the dark and dangerous spin on a story they already know and love.
Vivienne will play the youngest incarnation of Aurora, with Elle Fanning taking over as the older princess. The film also stars India Eisley, Miranda Richardson, and Juno Temple.
