Disney Has To Change Moana's Title in Italy — To Avoid Confusion With A Famous Porn Star!

For most of us, Moana is the upcoming animated Disney film about an adventurous Polynesian princess who doesn't need help from a male hero on her sea quest.

But for Italians, it's the name of the country's most beloved porn star, the late Moana Pozzi.

That's apparently why the studio has renamed the upcoming tale in Italy, instead calling it Oceania!

Disney Italia has not responded to a query about the name change, but most believe the title swap is to prevent children stumbling upon vintage pornography when searching movie times online.

A Disney source in California said "the studio frequently changes titles in foreign territories for a wide variety of reasons" — which seems to be the case with its newest feature.

Throughout Europe, Moana has been given the title Vainia, or "water cave," which Disney Spain confirmed was due to "Moana" already being a registered brand in Spain and other European countries.

But most Italian press is in agreement that Disney is trying to distance the film from the iconic porn actress who has been a household name for the last 30 years.

Moana Pozzi rose to popularity after starring in her first adult film Valentina, Girl in Heat while also working on a children's show Tip Tap Club. Though she denied it was her on film, the beauty was suspended from TV, only creating a spike in her popularity.

After her first A-level porn film Fantastica Moana, the Italian media's fascination grew and Pozzi quickly became a regular on TV shows.

She was also celebrated for publicly speaking her mind about gay and sexual rights, and even ran for mayor of Rome under a platform of legalizing brothels and creating "love parks." She died in 1994 at the age of 33.

Moana crashes to theaters November 23… but now we may be more interested in watching a biopic about her erotic counterpart!
