The upcoming release, about an adventurous Polynesian princess, will hit cinemas in Italy as Oceania, so there's no link to X-rated actress Moana Pozzi.

Pozzi rose to notoriety in Italy by starring in her first adult film, Valentina, Girl in Heat, while working on children's show Tip Tap Club. She later ran for mayor of Rome promising to legalise brothels. She died in 1994.

The new Disney film will also be retitled in Spain, where Moana is a registered brand.
