Angelina Jolie Says Her and Brad Pitt's Kids Don't Want to Be Actors, But They Will Be in 'Kung Fu Panda 3'by Raphael Chestang 5:54 PM PST, January 06, 2016
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's kids probably won't go into the family business, but they did get a chance to shine in Kung Fu Panda 3.
Angelina told ET she took Pax,12, Zahara,10, Shiloh, 9, and Knox, 7, with her to work one day, where they provided animal noises for some of the pandas in the animated film.
"They were kind of shy," Angelina explained. "They don't really want to be actors, but I didn't want them to miss the opportunity. They came in, and they had a lot of fun with it."
The upcoming action-adventure comedy follows Po (Jack Black) as he reunites with his long-lost panda father and travels to a secret panda paradise. The newfound utopia is threatened when the supernatural villain Kai (J.K. Simmons) begins a path of destruction across China, forcing Po to have to train the village of peaceful brethren to become the ultimate band of Kung Fu Pandas.
The father-son storyline resonated with Angelina.
"It handled it well, because it didn't brush over it," she said. "It shows that it's complicated and it's not easy and it's not over in a happy second."
