Disney Movie comes with Seizure Warning

Helen, aka Elastagirl, in the animated film “Incredibles 2” has asked theaters to warn customers about a sequence of flashing lights in the film that could be problematic for people with epilepsy, seizure conditions, migraines or autism.
According to USA Today, the villain Screenslaver is featured in one of the scenes with bright flashing/strobe lights for more than 15 seconds. Five scenes are concerning in this film about a family of superheroes with one scene going over 90 seconds of continuous strobing lights.
The Epilepsy Foundation wrote that about 3 percent of people with epilepsy have photosensitive  seizures triggered by exposure to flashing lights. According to Variety, no incidents of seizures have been reported, but noted that in 1997 nearly 700 children in Japan went to the hospital after watching “Pokemon” movie that had flashing red and blue lights.
