Zahara Jolie-Pitt

It won't be just 4-year-old Vivienne Jolie-Pitt who'll be joining mom Angelina in the upcoming $200 million Disney fantasy movie, Maleficent, which tells the Sleeping Beauty tale from the perspective of the princess' evil nemesis, Maleficent, played by Angelina Jolie.

US Weekly is reporting exclusively that 7-year-old Zahara Jolie-Pitt, the couple's adopted Ethiopian daughter, will also join mummy Angelina in the movie.

You remember Zahara, I'm sure. If not, you'll probably recall the kerfuffle over her natural hair, 3 years ago, as certain black women attacked Angelina Jolie for not knowing how to care for her black child's hair. 

Specifically, there was the Newsweek magazine piece written by Allison Samuels, a black woman, calling out Angelina for what she described as Jolie's disregard for her black daughter's hair, describing little Zahara's naturally kept hair as, "wild and unstyled, uncombed and dry. Basically: a “hot mess.""

Remember that?

Anyway... 3 years later, Zahara survived the wrath of Samuels and others, and will be making her feature film acting debut alongside Angelina, in Maleficent, which is scheduled for release in 2014.

However, unlike her sister Vivienne, her part will be small; although no word on what exactly it'll be.

Maleficent also stars Juno Temple, Sam Riley, Brenton Thwaites, India Eisley, Miranda Richardson and Kenneth Cranham

Might Zahara's future include a career in acting? That remains to be seen...
