Brad Bird’s Incredibles 2, the much-awaited sequel to the 2004-film The Incredibles, has finally made its way to the big screen. Unfortunately, the new Pixar film is being held responsible for triggering some epileptic members of the audience, who took to Twitter to warn others potential cases.

The film has several scenes with strobing lights, which is reportedly integral to the main plot. These lights reportedly have made quite a few audience members (suspect to epileptic fits) uncomfortable. And while certain cinemas have put out warnings, the producers Disney-Pixar have not put out a warning in the film.
One of my best friends @Marcosplaysbass has had 7 seizures since yesterday night when he watched @TheIncredibles and hasn’t been doing well at all. @DisneyPixar I hope you guys as a company we both love and believe in steps up and helps my friend with his hospital expenses.

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

And it wasn’t just those were affected by it, that were tweeting. Some members of the audience reported seizures during their screening of Incredibles 2.
Just saw Incredibles 2. It was awesome! However, someone in our theater had an epileptic seizure due to some visual effects. Be safe.

Incredibles 2 will see Kajol make her debut in an animated feature film, where she will be the voice of Elastigirl for the film’s Hindi dubbed version. Interestingly, Shah Rukh Khan made his debut with the original 2004 film.
The film still hasn’t released in India as of now, but is slated for June 22. Please be warned if you’re sensitive to lights, or if you’re taking kids along who might be sensitive to strobing lights – the scenes could cause epileptic seizures.
