The new film, "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker", drops in theatres later this month (December 2019), but in a letter to cinemas in association with the Epilepsy Foundation, the studio is requesting that venues warn moviegoers about the potential risk.

"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 containing the following information: 'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' contains several sequences with imagery and sustained flashing lights that may affect those who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy or have other photosensitivities," the letter said.

"Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker", directed by J.J. Abrams and starring Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and the late Carrie Fisher, is released on December 20.
