Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s brood has gotten bigger — and it’s not because there’s a new addition.

The Jolie-Pitt six have grown up, as was clear from their taller, heftier, older, and more-mature-than-ever selves on Saturday at the premiere of Kung Fu Panda 3 in Los Angeles. Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 9, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 7, proudly posed for photographers alongside their mom, 40, at the event.

STORY: Angelina Jolie Goes From ‘Miserable’ Childhood to ‘Dorky’ Parenthood

The eldest guys, Pitt, 52, and son Maddox, 14, didn’t attend, but Jolie recently revealed that her first child is going to be actively involved in making movies. The Cambodian-born teen has big responsibilities, in fact, as part of Jolie’s upcoming Netflix project, an adaptation of First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers. “Maddox will be on set every day after school and involved behind the scenes,” she told the Associated Press of her son, who also worked as a production assistant on Jolie and Pitt’s By the Sea. “As Maddox and I prepare the film we will be side by side learning about his country.”

Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and Knox, meanwhile, can add the third Kung Fu Panda film to their résumés: The kids provided animal noises for some of the pandas in the cartoon. “They were kind of shy,” Jolie told Entertainment Tonight. “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.”

Acting, Jolie told Extra, has always been hers and Pitt’s thing, “but now it’s really together, it’s lovely.” Not that she pressured any of them into acting, she added. “It’s been, ‘If you want to, you can jump in, and here’s a crazy idea’ … and some of them were shy, but this one they all really wanted to and they all came together and did their recording together and took it very seriously — it was cute. Now that they’ve had a taste, they think Mommy’s job is ridiculously easy.”

Pitt’s take on the kids’ careers? “After you’re 18,” he told E! while promoting 2008’s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, in which Shiloh had a cameo, “do whatever you want to do.”
