A not-so-Incredible problem.

Following a viral Twitter thread which warned viewers that footage in Incredibles 2 had potential to trigger seizures, theaters have decided to add strobe light warnings to the recently released Pixar film.

The footage in question involves rapidly flashing lights and occurs multiple times throughout the film, one sequence lasting over half a minute. The viral thread in question was started by Twitter user Veronica Lewis (@veron4ica) and detailed the various scenes filled with strobing lights that could “cause issues for people with epilepsy, migraines, and chronic illness.”

Following this thread going viral, Disney has notified all theaters showing the film and requested them to notify patrons of this potential issue, according to Variety. There have been no reported incidents stemming from the issue at this time.

Incredibles 2 was released this weekend and has set some incredible records in the process, bringing in an estimated $18.5 million in its opening night.

The film has been a critical success as well. In our review, we said that “Incredibles 2 embraces what made its first outing so memorable: The Parr family and their willingness to work together in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.”
