There was a flurry of excitement at Los Angeles international airport on Wednesday night as Angelina Jolie whipped through with her entire brood under cover of darkness.
The 38-year-old looked sleek and unruffled as she marshalled her cherubic twins Knox and Vivienne, five, into the terminal.
Her other children Zahara, 8, Pax, 10, Shiloh, 7, and 12-year-old Maddox, followed.
It's being reported that Jolie is relocating her family to Australia while she directs new film, Unbroken.
Jolie's partner Brad Pitt, 49, didn't board the Quantas flight with his family, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
The UN ambassador had been looking at possible locations in Hawaii before settling upon filming around Sydney.
It's thought the family's Antipodean adventure could last three months.
Unbroken tells the true story of Olympic track star and war hero Louie Zamperini, who survived for 47 days without food or water when his airforce plane crashed in the Pacific in 1943.
He endured shark attacks, aerial attacks and hunger before being captured by the Japanese and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp.
Jolie said in July: 'I’ve had the privilege of spending a great deal of time with Louie Zamperini, who is a hero of mine, and now - I am proud to say - a dear friend.
'I am deeply honoured to be telling his extraordinary story, and I will do my absolute best to give him the film he deserves.'
While Jolie and her brood travel Down Under, Brad has been seen shooting for his next project, Fury, in England.
On Tuesday, the 49-year-old actor spent the day in a tank as part of the intense preparations for the World War 2 drama, which is due to start filming in the coming weeks.
Brad stars alongside a big name cast including Shia LaBeouf, Michael Pena, Logan Lerman, and Jon Bernthal in the film which is scheduled for release in November 2014.
The biopic tells the story of a crew of a Sherman tank in the final weeks of the war.
Latest reports suggest a new name may be joining Brad and co as they shoot in Europe during the autumn.
Clint Eastwood’s son Scott, who has previously acted in Invictus and TVs Chicago Fire is rumored to have landed a role in the David Ayer project.
