Vivienne Jolie-Pitt Cast in MALEFICENT

By Dina Ginzburg

Being raised by two Hollywood actors, it was only a matter of time before the children of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt caught the acting bug. Shiloh made a cameo appearance in one of her father’s movies when she was only a baby. Now, it’s Vivienne’s turn.

She has been cast as the younger version of Princess Aurora in MALEFICENT, a live-action Disney film that tells the story of Sleeping Beauty from the point of view of the evil fairy who cursed her. Naturally, Angelina Jolie plays the title character! Elle Fanning (Dakota Fanning’s younger sister) will be playing the older version of Princess Aurora.  

Seeing as Aurora is cursed by Maleficent when she is very young, Angelina and Vivienne will have some scenes together. Apparently, Vivienne is a natural when it comes to acting… though this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, considering who her parents are!

MALEFICENT will hit theatres on March 14, 2014! This newest development has given us another reason to be super excited for its release!
