The series will be directed by Erasmus Brosdau, and during the Anime Expo 2023, he sent a message to his fans, expressing his excitement about the series. He introduced himself in the video and went on to say:

“I’m very excited to finally be able to talk about this animated series which will shed some more light on the One Year War by focusing almost entirely on the Zeon side. We want to show you the world of Gundam in a new and realistic look so that you can feel like you’re sitting inside the cockpit."

He continued:

"But we are also trying to push the technical aspects by creating this entire series using Unreal Engine 5, a software that allows us to create content much faster. I can’t wait to show you much more so I hope you’re looking forward to future updates. Thank you very much!”
