'Incredibles 2': New Warnings Posted at Theaters Due to Concerns of Seizures

Before you head out to see the new Incredibles movie with your kids, check out this warning:

Disney advised theaters to warn moviegoers about the flashing lights in the movie possibly affecting those with photosensitive epilepsy or other photo sensitivities. The warning has been posted at theaters across Southwest Florida as well.

Only three percent of people with epilepsy have photosensitive epilepsy, according to the Epilepsy Foundation . This means a seizure can be caused by flashing lights. Children and teenagers are affected the most.

But other triggers exist. The most common are TV screens and computer monitors but video games, or even sunlight shimmering off of water can cause a seizure.

The Epilepsy Foundation says epilepsy is genetic, and the foundation is happy to talk with anyone who feels they might be sensitive to these types of things.

After the movie release Friday, ‘Incredibles 2’ had the biggest box office opening ever for an animated movie over the weekend.
