    The upcoming Star Wars film that is scheduled to hit big screens on 20 December will conclude the controversial sequel trilogy. The episode will feature Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, and other stars from the last two movies.

    Disney has warned Star Wars fans about several sequences in The Rise of Skywalker that may be dangerous for people with photosensitive epilepsy. The company recently sent out a letter to the Epilepsy Foundation addressing the issue and warning cinemas about the flashing lights in the movie.

    "We thank Disney for reaching out to us and proactively providing information to movie theatres and moviegoers in advance of the movie’s release", the foundation stated.

    Disney didn't elaborate on the details, but the foundation recommended those who may be affected to seek help from their friends, who could provide warnings about the flashing lights and help in case of a seizure.
