Vivienne Jolie-Pitt is following in her parents’ footsteps.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s daughter, 4, landed her first Hollywood gig, Walt Disney Studios confirmed to PEOPLE on Wednesday in a statement.

Jolie-Pitt will play the child version of Princess Aurora, opposite Jolie, in Maleficent, the live-action updated version of the classic fairy-tale Sleeping Beauty.

Elle Fanning, who plays the grown version of Aurora, will take on the majority of Aurora’s role, according to sources, who add that Jolie-Pitt’s part is very minor.
