Angelina Chavez Torres: Christmas With You Tribute Explained

The hit movie Christmas With You is now streaming on Netflix, starring Freddie Prinze Jr. and Aimee García. Based on our review, Christmas With You is a romantic comedy set during Christmas time that “passes the time very nicely and charmingly.” It follows García as pop star Angelina, who could barely survive in the era of social media.

And after she made up her mind to surprise a young fan, ends up bonding with the fan’s family and writing a new song with the father, played by Freddie Prinze Jr. The film is dedicated to a woman named Angelina Chavez Torres.


Who is Angelina Chavez Torres?

Angelina Chavez Torres, happens to be the mother of German Michael Torres, who came up with the story for Christmas With You, who also is a producer on the film. Angelina died in July 2020, as her son confirmed via an Instagram post, where he wrote:

“My beautiful mom, my Angel, is now an Angel with my pops. My heart is broken. I love you mom. Thank you for being the best mom ever and loving me like you did.”

It is no coincidence, of course, that the main female character of the movie is named Angelina or that she recently passed away, something that brings nostalgia out of her during Christmas time. Moreover, judging from the time of the release of this movie, it’s even possible that German Michael Torres came up with the story for the script back in Christmas 2020 and decided to credit his mom for inspiring the movie.
