What’s missing? While the eight(!) disc boxed set includes the original Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters II and this year’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife, it does not include the Feig-directed Ghostbusters from 2016, starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon.
In his tweet, addressed to @SonyPictures, Feig wrote: “I know this must be a mistake. We do have a lot of fans and Bill, Dan and Ernie were in it and it won the Kids Choice Award for Best Feature Film the year it came out. So, I guess this was just an oversight?”
Um … @SonyPictures, I know this must be a mistake. We do have a lot of fans and Bill, Dan and Ernie were in it and it won the Kids Choice Award for Best Feature Film the year it came out. So, I guess this was just an oversight? #weareallghostbusters 👻❤️ https://t.co/dI8TwJsG4I

Adding to the oddity of the situation is that Feig’s film was included along with the first two pictures in a 2016 box set, which is still for sale on Amazon.
Deadline reached out to Sony Pictures for comment, but did not hear back.
