Angelina Jolie's Daughter to Make Big Screen Debut in 'Maleficent'

Disney

Acting must really run in Angelina Jolie's family blood.

When she was just seven years old, she got her first big screen role in her dad Jon Voight's "Lookin' To Get Out," and now her daughter Vivienne Jolie-Pitt is all set for her Hollywood debut at the tender age of four.

Yep, Walt Disney Studios confirmed today that Vivienne Jolie-Pitt (Knox's twin and one of Angelina's six children with fiancé Brad Pitt) will have a cameo in Jolie's "Maleficient," the movie she's currently filming about the backstory of the titular "Sleeping Beauty" villain.

Jolie-Pitt will portray a young version of Princess Aurora (the elder of which will be played by Elle Fanning) in the picture, presumably opposite India Eisley who's bringing to life a young Maleficent.

Both mom Jolie and grandpa Voight have earned Academy Awards, so is this the beginning of an illustrious career for little Vivienne? Very possible! She is, after all, getting an earlier start than any of her thespian relatives.

The Sun, which broke the news before Disney's confirmation, also claims that this news has gotten some of Vivienne's siblings a little riled up, with a source stating, "Ange thought it would be a fun experience for her and Viv to share, and Viv is a natural ... The other kids are now nagging Ange and Brad to land them roles."

This is slowly becoming something of a Tinseltown dynasty, no?

"Maleficent" hits theaters on March 14, 2014.
