Walt Disney Studios says Angelina Jolie's youngest daughter will play a "minor role" in "Maleficent," in which Jolie plays the title character. Vivienne is set to play a young Princess Aurora, who grows up to be evil Maleficent's target in the live-action "Sleeping Beauty" tale.

Elle Fanning will portray the older teen version of Princess Aurora.

Production on the film began in London in June. "Maleficent" is set to hit theaters in March of 2014. It's Jolie's first acting role in two years.

No word if Vivienne's twin brother, Knox, is working on a movie career of his own.
