In an unprecedented move, Disney has issued a warning to viewers about its new Incredibles film.


Incredibles 2, the animated Disney blockbuster that picks up where the original movie left off 14 years ago, features a sequence with the villain Screenslaver that features bright flashing lights. After the film opened Friday, some theatergoers posted on social media that the superhero cartoon could trigger seizures in people with epilepsy, migraines or chronic illness. The Epilepsy Foundation even issued a statement about concerns that people with epilepsy could suffer a seizure during the movie. “(We) appreciate the efforts some theaters have already made to post warning signs for people waiting to see the movie,” the statement said.

On Friday, Walt Disney Pictures sent an advisory to theaters showing Incredibles 2, asking them flag customers to the scene.

AMC supervisor Mauricio Mencia, who’s worked at the Universal CityWalk location in Los Angeles for the past year, says, “I’ve never seen something like that happen.”
