Incredibles 2 Has the Biggest Animated Film Debut of All Time

She added: "I am not calling for a boycott of Incredibles 2, or to change the movie".

"Disney has been notified of the situation and asked all theaters that are showing "Incredibles 2" to notify patrons of the scene in question", Variety reported.

Fans who have already seen ' Incredibles 2' movie are warning other theatre-goers of the potential epilepsy triggers caused due to the strobe lights.

According to the Epilepsy Foundation, "for about 3 percent of people with epilepsy, exposure to flashing lights at certain intensities, or with certain visual patterns, can trigger seizures".

INCREDIBLES 2 contains a sequence of flashing lights which may affect customers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy or other photosensitivities.

"I'm extremely happy about this because I published that thread thinking if I could even help one person avoid a migraine or a seizure, I consider this a success", she said.

That led the USA -based Epilepsy Foundation to call on Disney to post warnings about the flashing lights.

The highly anticipated sequel, which features Craig T. Nelson and Holly Hunter as voices for the parents of a superhero family, nabbed an estimated $183.2 million domestically this weekend, a record opening for animated film.

Glen Weldon of NPR writes, "Once again, the action is fittingly spectacular, the music is great, and the whole thing looks fantastic", while Joe Morgenstern of Wall Street Journal points out that it is "a great-looking sequel about the importance of family, and the potential for revenue".

According to Variety there have been no reported incidents of seizures among those who have seen "Incredibles 2", noting that in 1997 almost 700 children went to the hospital in Japan after watching the "Pokemon" movie that featured flashing red and blue lights in one scene.

The movie studio did just that, asking theatres to post a warning prior to any screenings. "In a darkened movie theater, this means the likelihood of a seizure could be VERY HIGH if you are sensitive to these effects".

"Incredibles 2" also tapped into moviegoers' sense of nostalgia.
