Disney Issues Epilepsy Warning For Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Next weekend thousands of people will be heading to the movies as the last Star Wars film, The Rise of Skywalker, hits the silver screen but not everyone will get to easily enjoy the end of a saga that has lasted over 40 years.

Walt Disney Studios issued a statement with the Epilepsy Foundation warning viewers that the film contains "several sequences with imagery and sustained flashing lights" that could affect those with photosensitive epilepsy.

According to the Epilepsy Foundation, 3% of the 50 million people with epilepsy are photosensitive, and although that may sound like a small percent, it affects around 1.5 million people.
