Angelina Jolie with 4 year old daughter VivienneThough Vivienne Jolie-Pitt is only 4 years old, the daughter of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt is stepping up to walk in her parents footsteps. Walt Disney confirmed yesterday that the cute little girl landed her first role in Hollywood.

Jolie-Pitt will be playing Princess Aurora as a child, and will in fact, be playing opposite her mother, Jolie, who has been cast as Maleficent in the live-action, updated classic fairy-tale “Sleeping Beauty.” Elle Fanning, younger sister to Dakota Fanning, will be taking on the role of an older Aurora, and will have the majority of Aurora’s parts in the film. Jolie-Pitt’s role in the film will be pretty minor, but it is still an awesome first job for the budding young actress.

As of right now, it is unclear if Jolie, who is 37 years old, and her little girl will be acting together in any parts of the film. There is also no word yet if Jolie-Pitt will have any lines as part of her role.

“Maleficent” which will be directed by Robert Stromberg, will be telling the same story as the 1959 Disney classic, only this time, we’ll get to see the story from the point of view of the wicked sorceress Maleficent, who casts an evil spell on Princess Aurora. The film is currently in production in Great Britain, and will open in theaters in March 2014.

In May of 2009, it was leaked that Brad Bird had developed an idea for a live-action film based on “Sleeping Beauty” but retold from Maleficent’s viewpoint. In January of 2010, it was rumored that Tim Burton would be directing the film, but in May of 2011, there were reports online that Burton had left the project so that he could focus on some other upcoming projects.

Linda Woolverton, who had previously worked with Burton on “Alice in Wonderland”, is writing the script for the film. Earlier this year, in January, Disney announced that Robert Stromberg, the Academy-Award winning production designer for both “Avatar” and “Alice in Wonderland” will be directing the film.Angelina Jolie as Maleficent

Sharlto Copley was just recently named as the male lead for the live action film. Imelda Staunton and Lesley Manville have also been cast for the film and will be playing two of the three pixies who take care of the princess. Miranda Richardson is reportedly playing the role as a Fairy Queen who is Maleficent’s aunt, and does not have a particular fondness for her evil niece. Sam Riley is said to play Diaval, the raven from the first film, only this time, Maleficent’s feathered friend can change into a human form as well.

Vivienne is not the first Jolie-Pitt to star in a movie with a parent. Shiloh Jolie-Pitt played a toddler in Pitt’s 2008 hit “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.”
