Angelina Jolie is officially passing the family business to her children.

US Weekly is reporting the Oscar winner's 7-year old adopted daughter Zahara will be joining her mom on screen in the upcoming Disney fantasy film Maleficent. Her 4-year old sister Vivienne Jolie-Pitt and 8-year old brother Pax will join her on screen as well.

A film source says the brood all “have smaller parts” in the movie. Zahara and Pax don’t have speaking roles while Vivienne plays the child version of Elle Fanning’s Princess Aurora character.

“It’s a really great script, and I’m having lots of fun,” Jolie told Entertainment Weekly back in March about the film. “My kids are very happy.”

Maleficent reinvents the fairy tale classic Sleeping Beauty, but tells it from the villainess’ point of view. Jolie stars as the title role.

The film is due in theaters March 2014. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
