The first promotional photo from Maleficent has been released, and it features Angelina Jolie as the titular villain alongside none other than her own daughter.
Her real-life daughter, that is. Vivienne Jolie-Pitt also stars!
Jolie-Pitt stars as the younger version of Elle Fanning's character, Aurora (a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty). As we all know, she's the nemesis of Jolie's Maleficent.
Ironic for little Viv, but doesn't she look the part?!
We first saw young Jolie-Pitt in the Maleficent trailer and to hear her mom tell it, she definitely got the part because of her mom. But not the way that sounds.
“The other three and four-year-old [actors] wouldn’t come near me," Angelina joked. "It had to be a child that liked me and wasn’t afraid of my horns, eyes and claws."
"So it had to be Viv."
