Incredibles 2 has been one of the most anticipated movies of the summer after fans waited nearly 14 years for the return of the Parr family. They returned to the big screen attempting to adjust to their lives as superheroes and audiences welcomed them with a stunning $180 million on opening weekend. For my movie and trivia buffs our there, that's the biggest opening weekend ever for an animated film!
But that's not the only reason why Incredibles 2 is making news and making the Twittersphere buzz. The Epilepsy Foundation released a warning for moviegoers that the movie can cause seizures for those who suffer from the condition after many took to their social media platforms to share their scares with followers.
TO ANY FRIENDS WHO HAVE EPILEPSY, SEIZURE DISORDERS OR LIGHT SENSITIVITY: please be careful if you’re seeing The Incredibles 2. I unfortunately had an issue and don’t want this happening to anybody else ❤️— Princess Rapunzel🌸 (@katieeemj) June 15, 2018
Just saw Incredibles 2. It was awesome! However, someone in our theater had an epileptic seizure due to some visual effects. Be safe.— ther2dude (@ther2view) June 15, 2018
HEALTH ALERT I haven’t seen this mentioned in a lot of places, but the new Incredibles 2 movie (#incredibles2) is filled with tons of strobe/flashing lights that can cause issues for people with epilepsy, migraines, and chronic illness.

Disney wasn't unaware of the possibility of seizures. Many movie theaters had warning signs posted throughout about the use of strobe lights in the movie. Twitter used Veronica Lewis posted pictures of several of these on her account.
Thank you to everyone for retweeting this, writing articles, and signal boosting my message! My goal of having signs at the ticket counter was reached so that people can be warned about the flashing lights in Incredibles 2. pic.twitter.com/JljozWlojd— Veronica Lewis (@veron4ica) June 17, 2018
