Disney Warns of Seizure Risk

Disney has advised that the latest Star Wars film could pose a seizure risk in people with Photosensitive Epilepsy. The Rise Of Skywalker was released in the UK on December 19th 2019 and fans turned up in droves to see it. Fans of the Sci-Fi will know the Star Wars movies consistently feature epic battle scenes, with lasers and lightsabers lighting up the big screen. And it’s possible that the flashing lights and strobe effects during the film could cause seizures for people with Photosensitive epilepsy. Whilst the film has moved from the big screen there is still the chance that it could have the same effects when watching the film on DVD or via a streaming service or television.
A statement from American charity Epilepsy Foundation says Walt Disney Studios and the Epilepsy Foundation are working together to advise Photosensitive viewers to use caution when watching Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker. The film contains several sequences with imagery and sustained flashing lights that may affect those with Photosensitive Epilepsy.
