    Angelina Jolie is keeping it all in the family.

    After tapping 4-year-old daughter Vivienne Jolie-Pitt for a role in Disney's live-action fairy tale, "Maleficent," as E! News reported back in August, the 37-year-old Oscar winner has now added 8-year-old son Pax and 7-year-old daughter Zahara to the cast.

    We're guessing mom didn't want to hear any complaints about feeling left out.

    Per People, Viv is set to play a young version of Princess Aurora (Elle Fanning) in the flick, which tells the "Sleeping Beauty" story from the titular Mistress of All Evil's point of view. Her older brother and sis, on the other hand, will be walk-on players in the christening scene in which Maleficent curses the infant Aurora, causing her to fall into a magical sleep that can only be broken by a kiss from her true love.

    No word whether Vivienne's twin brother, Knox, 6-year-old Shiloh (who already made her big-screen debut with a cameo in 2008's "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" starring dad Brad Pitt) and 11-year-old Maddox will be making an appearance.

    "Maleficent" is currently lensing in the U.K. and is to cast its spell in theaters on March 14, 2014.
