Your royal highness...Charo!

Yes, you read that right, Charo is the new Queen of England. At least that's the insane world we'll be spending a few hours in when the new Sharknado movie airs on Syfy this summer. The network announced on Thursday that the fifth installment of the cult hit franchise will officially be titled Sharknado 5: Global Swarming, while the tagline is, of course, "Make America Bait Again!"

But who cares about the official title and tagline when the list of celebrity cameos was also revealed and is truly insane. Along with Charo as the Queen of England, we have Fabio as the Pope. We repeat: Fabio. As. The. Pope. 

Premiering August 6, Sharknado 5: Global Swarming will find Fin (Ian Ziering) and April (Tara Reid), now bionic, following a traveling 'nado around the world (London, Rio, Taokyo, Rome, Amsterdam, and more!) after their son gets trapped in it. In their journey, they enlist help from a highly-skilled squad of royals, scholars and Olympians, enlisting famous faces from news, entertainment, and sports...which leads us to those crazy cameos.

Here's the full list of celebrity appearances you can expect from Sharknado 5:
