Angelina Jolie's "Maleficent" adds Pax and Zahara Jolie-Pitt to cast

Two more of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's children are following in their parents' acting footsteps.

Pax and Zahara Jolie-Pitt will appear in the film "Maleficent" alongside their mother and younger sister Vivienne, according to multiple reports.

An insider confirmed the casting news to The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday.

The film, in which Jolie plays the "Sleeping Beauty" sorceress, marks the first on-screen roles for the three children. Their sister Shiloh appeared as a baby in Pitt's 2008 film "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button."

According to THR, Pax, 8, and Zahara, 7, will have non-speaking roles. Deadline also reports that their parts are "very small."

Vivienne's casting was announced in August. The 4-year-old will play the younger version of Elle Fanning's Princess Aurora. That is a speaking role, THR reports.

"Maleficent" is set to arrive in theaters on March 14, 2014.
