Some scenes in Pixar's long-awaited Incredibles follow-up could pose a health risk to people suffering conditions such as epilepsy, according to one Twitter user. While the movie’s $180 million opening weekend smashed the box office record for an animated movie, it's use of flashing lights could "cause issues for people with epilepsy, migraines, and chronic illness," according to Veronica Lewis.

Commenting on the villain's weapon of choice in Incredibles 2, Lewis, whose Twitter bio states she suffers from vision impairment, warned cinemagoers that the weapon "is bright white lights that are at a rapidly flashing/strobing frequency, with the intent to disorient people. One of these scenes lasts over 90 seconds with continuous strobe light, other scenes last anywhere from 5-30 seconds." She also added that the lights "often come without warning."

Lewis requested that Pixar, distributor Disney, and theaters issue warnings to patrons, a move that is now reportedly set to happen.

The long-awaited sequel has been a runaway success so far. Per Rotten Tomatoes' breakdown, Incredibles 2 has already beaten Finding Dory's $135 million opening weekend and Beauty and the Beast's live-action remake record for the best PG-rated movie opening. If audiences continue to flock to theaters, it could be set to rank alongside Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War among the biggest movies of 2018.
