Disney's 'Moana' Gets Name Change in Italy Due to Porn

Disney's new animated film "Moana" isn't fit for kids in Italy ... or at least the title isn't because it's synonymous with hardcore porn.

The flick will be released in Italy under the name "Oceania" ... allegedly to avoid confusion with Moana Pozzi -- Italy's most popular adult film actress of all-time. It's not uncommon for Hollywood studios to change movie titles in foreign countries -- for all sorts of cultural reasons -- but imagine how this one could've messed with Italian kids trying to Google show times.  

For the record, Moana -- the naked one -- died in 1994, but is still revered in Italy for doing more than 100 pornos in the '80s and '90s, as well as mainstream TV appearances.

Disney isn't confirming the movie title change was due to the porn fact, but ... c'mon.
