Concerned People Are Calling For Epilepsy Warnings To Screen Before ‘Incredibles 2’

On June 15, Disney Pixar released Incredibles 2, the long-awaited sequel to 2004’s blockbuster The Incredibles. The sequel grossed $71.6 million on its first day, breaking the previous record for an animated film. 

Incredibles 2 continues the story of the super-hero family, the Parr family. The family is led by Bob Parr (Mr. Incredible) and Helen Parr (Elastigirl). Their children are Violet, Dash and Jack-Jack.

But some people have raised an important issue with the film.

The sequel’s villain uses a weapon that projects a bright, rapidly flashing light. However, Disney Pixar did not label the film with any type of warning for those with health concerns that can be triggered by such stimuli. 

And some movie-goers are outraged.

It began when Twitter user Veronica Lewis began a thread about her experience with the movie.

Others picked up on Lewis’ warnings and added their thoughts on the issue.

After feedback from moviegoers, some theaters have taken it upon themselves to warn viewers.

In fact, the Epilepsy Foundation released their own warning as well.

But some people think it is the responsibility of the viewer to know a movie’s content without a heads up from the movie maker. 

Others point out the film had to pass various screenings before release.

Regardless, if you suffer from a photosensitive health disorder, you may want to take precautions when watching Incredibles 2.
