FIRST LOOK: Pax and Zahara Jolie-Pitt in ‘Maleficent’

Pax and Zahara Jolie-Pitt in 'Maleficent' © DisneyWell, technically it’s more of a second look. When we shared two dozen newly released hi-res stills from Disney’s Maleficent (May 30, 2014) yesterday, we also inadvertently also gave a glimpse of Jolie-Pitt family members Pax and Zahara in their uncredited roles.

Seen here as participants in the coronation scene as mama Maleficent briskly passes by, the pair portray a prince and princess escorted by their ‘mothers’ who — as it turns out — are their real-life tutors, according to an interview Jolie recently gave to Entertainment Weekly.
