Anjelina Jolie’s Daughter Vivienne to Play Young Princess Aurora in “Maleficent”

“Vivienne will play a small role in the pic as the child version of Princess Aurora opposite her own mother, who will be playing the title role of the evil queen. (Elle Fanning will star as the teen version of Princess Aurora.)”[THR]

And another star couple’s offspring makes her big screen debut: Angelina Jolie’s four-year-old daughter Vivienne is set to play the (very) young version of Princess Aurora in Disney’s upcoming live action fantasy retelling of its classic animated 1959 film, Sleeping Beauty. Jolie is, of course, cast as the Evil Witch Maleficent, so it will be interesting to see if Hollywood’s most famously doting and protective mommy will unleash the wrath of the legendary villainess on her real-life baby. Vivienne is a cutie, though she definitely looks more like her father than Angelina. Vivienne’s role is described as “very, very brief”, which will be a relief to the director since four year olds are generally not known to be great with line memorization.
