Moana Between December and January 2017, the world will meet Moana, the new animated film of the Disney factory that promises endless adventures from the hand of its friendly protagonist. However, the film will be called in a different way in Italy, due to a curious and somewhat uncomfortable reason.
Moana Pozzi is the name of an Italian pornographic actress, who died in 1994, at age 33. In addition to her fame within the adult industry, her early death made her even more popular within the country. Watch ‘Moana’ OnlineTherefore, the all-powerful American producer decided that, to avoid confusion, would modify the title of his film in Italy by Oceania, referring to the place where the action takes place.
Moana, directed by John Musker and Ron Clements, tells the story of a girl explorer and passionate about adventure directed by Ron Clements and John Musker and whose greatest co-directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams illusion is to travel the world by boat. In Argentina, its premiere is scheduled for January 19.
The US factory Disney has decided to change the title of its latest animated film,
‘Moana’, in Italy, to avoid coincidence with the name of a well-known adult film actress, Moana Pozzi.
The film, which will reach Italian cinemas in late December, will be called ‘Oceania’, in reference to the place where the film unfolds.
In this way, it will avoid that it coincides with the name of Pozzi, a famous erotic film actress who passed away in 1994 at age 33.
Davide Romani, head of the marketing department for US studios in Italy, already announced last year that the company was considering a change in the title.
The protagonist of the film will be called Vaiana, the same name that will have in other countries like Spain, where also has had to change the original title of the film (here will be ‘Vaiana’) since it coincides with the trademark of a gel.

Moana, Vaiana, now Oceania … But what is the name of the new Disney princess? What a mess they are making us with so much change and so many names. The animated film directed by John Musker and Ron Clements and featuring the voices of Dwayne Johnson, Jemaine Clement, Alan Tudyk and Nicole Scherzinger, among others, already has three different titles for different countries. Why?
Apparently, in Spain, the name of the film was modified to ‘Vaiana’ because ‘Moana’ is a registered trademark in the country. However, the reason for the change in Italy, which has been called ‘Oceania’, is even more curious.
The title of the animated film, the Italians reminds Moana Pozzi, one of the most famous Italian porn stars in history. That is why Disney has decided to avoid this peculiar and funny coincidence and for the billboard there, the film is going to launch under the name of ‘Oceania’.
A reason more than reasonable especially for Italian parents who would not want to hear their children say, “Mom, Dad, I want to be like Moana.” Although of course, now say that they want to be like a continent … Doubts still arise as to whether the new name is the most successful.
