US animation company Disney warns movie theaters over epilepsy risks during watching ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker'.
The Walt Disney Studios warned in a letter that flashing lighting effects and other visuals in its new offering may turn bad for those dealing with epilepsy.
We want to make you aware that some visuals and sustained flashing lighting effects in ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ may affect photosensitive viewers. Out of an abundance of caution, we recommend that you provide at your venue box office and online, and at other appropriate places where your customers will see it, a notice” for this issue, the letter reads.
The letter comes after the Epilepsy Foundation issued a warning to viewers in 2018 over Disney/Pixar film 'Incredibles 2'.
