Film stands out as a compelling contemporary mass medium that has witnessed substantial growth. This progress has given rise to numerous film genres, intended to captivate audiences across generations, including the realm of animated cinema. Often, films convey messages depicting the dichotomy between good and bad characters in everyday life, typically portraying the vulnerable and kind-hearted individuals facing oppression from self-centered antagonists. However, in fictional works like "Incredibles 2," superheroes emerge as guardians, shielding society from menacing forces. This research aimed to provide a comprehensive elucidation of the interpretive process through the utilization of the triadic model. Furthermore, it endeavors to discern the facets of morality manifested through both linguistic and visual symbols within the semiotic framework of the movie "Incredibles 2."
