Back in August, it was reported that Vivienne will star alongside her mother - who plays the title role of the villain Maleficent - as the young Princess Aurora in the film, and apparently the other Jolie-Pitt children have also expressed an interest in taking part in Disney's re-telling of the Sleeping Beauty story.

According to People magazine, Angelina and Brad Pitt's son, Pax, eight, and daughter Zahara, seven, have landed roles in the film as walk-on characters in the christening scene when Princess Aurora is cursed as a child.

'Ange thought it would be a fun experience for her and Viv to share, and Viv is a natural,' said an insider, when it was revealed that Vivienne would star alongside her mum in the film. 'The other kids are now nagging Ange and Brad to land them roles.'

The film, which is due for release in March 2014, has been shooting outside of London and includes Miranda Richardson, Juno Temple, Imelda Staunton and Elle Fanning in the role of Princess Aurora.
