Variety reported on Saturday that Disney had become aware of the response and was asking theaters to add a warning for photosensitive and epileptic moviegoers.

She describes herself on her blog as a "four-eyed college student from Virginia who loves writing about technology, education, and disability". Apparently, viewers couldn't wait to watch the family in action again, as the 14-years-in-the-making sequel reportedly earned approximately $180 million this weekend, overtaking the studio's Finding Dory, which earned around $135 million its opening weekend two years ago.

The movie, which had the best opening weekend of an animated film ever, has scenes with flashing lights.

Hopefully, that sort of performance might mean we'll get more Incredibles movies. "(We) appreciate the efforts some theaters have already made to post warning signs for people waiting to see the movie", the statement said.

In 1997, 685 children were sent to hospitals in Japan after an episode of "Pokemon" flashed red and blue lights to animate a scene in which Pikachu blows up missiles in cyberspace.

The movie is based on the life of Parrs, a family blessed with superpowers.

She detailed that one of the scenes lasts at least 90 seconds and that others range from five to 30 seconds in length.

If you know of anyone planning to see this movie that suffers from any of these sensitivities or illnesses, please notify them of this issue.

The Epilepsy Foundation says in some situations flashing lights can trigger a seizure for about 3-percent of patients. Over the weekend, several fans who saw the flick posted on Twitter that there were some scenes containing flashing lights that could be concerning for people with photosensitive epilepsy or other photosensitivities.

Lewis said she wasn't calling for a boycott or demanding that the movie be changed.
