Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's Kids Pax and Zahara Cast in Maleficent!
Two months after a rep for Walt Disney Studios confirmed 4-year-old Vivienne Jolie-Pitt will play the child version of Elle Fanning's Princess Aurora in the live-action movie Maleficent, Us Weekly has learned that two of the A-list couple's other children, Pax, 8, and Zahara, 7, will also appear in the fantasy flick; a rep for Disney had no comment.
"They have smaller parts," reveals a source, who adds that Pax and Zahara won't have speaking roles. "Shiloh was supposed to be in it, too, but she was bored and not in the mood during the day her part was supposed to happen, so she ended up not being in the film." (Six-year-old Shiloh did, however, have a brief role in Pitt's 2008 film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.)
Maleficent is a reimagining of the classic fairy tale Sleeping Beauty, told from the villainess' perspective; Jolie plays the titular role. The film also stars Juno Temple, Sam Riley, Brenton Thwaites, India Eisley, Miranda Richardson and Kenneth Cranham. It's slated for a March 2014 release.
"It's a really great script, and I'm having a lot of fun. I've already got my horns fitted," Academy Award winner Jolie told Entertainment Weekly in March, three months before shooting began. "My kids are very happy."
Jolie and Pitt, 48, are also parents to son Maddox, 11, and Knox, 4.
