Behind the Scenes of Elemental
For fans of the making-of, a documentary entitled “Good Chemistry: The Story of Elemental” will also be available. The film explores the personal journey of director Peter Sohn, revealing how the history of his parents, who emigrated from Korea to New York, and his experience in the family grocery store in the Bronx, influenced his choice to pursue a career in 'animation.
