Epilepsy Foundation wants flashing lights warning added to 'Incredibles 2'
Some people have experienced seizures during the movie from what has been described as "flashing" and "strobe" lights in the film.
LOS ANGELES (WDRB) -- The Epilepsy Foundation is asking that a flashing lights warning be added to "Incredibles 2."
The organization says some people have experienced seizures during the movie from what has been described as "flashing" and "strobe" lights in the film.
A small percentage of people with epilepsy can be at risk for seizures when they are exposed to flashing lights at certain intensities or with certain visual patterns. This condition is known as photosensitive epilepsy and it's more common in children and adolescents.
Some theaters have already posted warning signs for people waiting to see the movie.
The Disney and Pixar movie broke the record over the weekend for the best animated opening of all time and the biggest for a PG-rated film. Disney estimated Sunday that the film has earned $180 million in its first weekend in theaters.
The previous animation record-holder was another Pixar sequel, "Finding Dory," which had a $135 million launch in 2016. It was Disney's live-action "Beauty and the Beast" that held the record for a PG debut.
The Epilepsy Foundation wants Disney and Pixar to post a warning on all their websites and social media channels connected to the movie.
