In some not-so-shocking news, Disney have confirmed that Angelina Jolie‘s own daughter, Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, will play a young Aurora alongside her mom in the upcoming live-action Sleeping Beauty spin-off, Maleficent. [/Film]

As many of you know or, instead, could have guessed, the upcoming Disney project explores that story’s most nefarious character, Maleficent, and her motivation behind cursing the helpless Princess Aurora. Although the role is quite small — which could be a good thing, considering Vivienne is only four — she’ll portray the child version of Princess Aurora, who we can expect to see Elle Fanning as for the rest of the film.

Longtime visual effects master, Robert Stromberg, will make his directorial debut for the project, from a screenplay written by Paul Dini and Alice in Wonderland scribe Linda Woolverton. Juno Temple has been cast as a pixie fairy, Brenton Thwaites is playing the dutiful & handsome Young Prince, and Sharlto Copley will be seen in the role of Aurora’s father, King Stefan.

Maleficent will hit theaters on March 14th, 2014.

What are your thoughts on Vivienne being cast in Maleficent?
