“Incredibles 2” prompts movie theaters to post Disney-approved warnings for light-sensitive viewers

in Disney, Entertainment, Movies, Movies & TV, Pixar

“Incredibles 2” has been a massive success since hitting theaters last week. Disney/Pixar’s latest animated hit set a new record at the box office for animated films, and is drawing very positive reviews from critics and fans alike.

There is one small problem with the movie however: The Screen Slaver, the film’s villain, uses flashing lights to hypnotize people. Those strobe effects are used repeatedly throughout the movie and can be a problem for viewers who may suffer from a condition that would cause them to be sensitive to light like epilepsy, migraines, vision impairments, seizure conditions, vertigo, autism, ADHD, and PTSD.

Twitter user Veronica Lewis took to social media to warn people of this and to urge Disney/Pixar and movie theaters to post warnings at their box offices of the lighting effects.

Veronica makes it clear that she does not wish for the movie itself to be boycotted or changed in any way. She simply wants viewers to be given a proper warning before getting themselves into a situation they were not prepared for.

As you can see by the numbers of responses to her tweets, her plea went viral and theaters began to post warnings regarding the lighting effects used in “Incredibles 2.” According to an article in Variety, Disney is aware of this situation and has approved of these warning messages.

So in case your local theater has not yet posted an official warning, please be aware (and make others aware if possible) that “Incredibles 2” does feature some intense strobe-like lighting effects throughout the duration of the film that could affect people with a condition causing them to be sensitive to light.

That being said, “Incredibles 2” is a fantastic addition to Disney/Pixar’s already very impressive library and you can (and should) see it in theaters now!
