There has been some chatter today about the much anticipated Incredibles 2 movie causing some distress. These sequences could prove harmful to those who suffer from epilepsy, migraines, or several other light-sensitive conditions.

Shortly after the sequel hit theaters Friday, several Twitter users issued warnings about a number of scenes that were potentially unsafe for moviegoers with certain medical conditions. "My descriptive audio device warned me about the larger scenes, but other times it was light strobe lights came out of nowhere for no reason", she tweeted.

"So, the villain's weapon of choice in the movie is bright white lights that are at a rapidly flashing/strobing frequency, with the intent to disorient people".

Lewis went on to say that she was not calling for a boycott of Incredibles 2, but she did express concern about the lack of warning notices. "One of these scenes lasts over 90 seconds with [a] continuous strobe light, other scenes last anywhere from 5-30 seconds".

She also wrote a more detailed entry about it on her personal blog, Veroniiiica, though she goes out of her way to state that she isn't calling for a boycott or adjustment of the Pixar film, but is simply asking that theaters issue a warning about these strobe-heavy sequences prior to screenings. However, Lewis notes the strobe lights are "important to the plot" and simply wanted to make sure Disney did more to alert parents to the potential risk.
