You probably saw it this weekend with the kiddos Pixar’s “Incredibles 2” just earned 180-million dollars at the box office and that’s the biggest opening ever for an animated film

At the same time, Disney is issuing an unprecedented warning to viewers of the new film.

There’s a scene in the movie with a villain named “Screen-Slaver” that features a series of bright flashing lights.

The warning comes after some people posting concerns on social media that moviegoers with a type of epilepsy could be at risk. 

The Epilepsy Foundation says for about three percent of patients, in some situations flashing lights can trigger a seizure.

It’s called photosensitive epilepsy and is more common in kids and teens.
