Series Summary from ANN:
Gundam AGE's story will cover a century and three generations of Gundam pilots. In the year A.G. 101 (Advanced Generation) — several hundred years after human have migrated into space — an Unknown Enemy (UE) suddenly attacks the space colony Angel and destroys it. In A.G. 108, the war with the UE comes to the home colony of seven-year-old Furitto Asuno. After losing his mother to the war, he is entrusted with the "AGE Device," a memory unit with blueprints for an ancient mobile suit known "Gundam."
In the year A.G. 115, 14-year-old Furitto is at the Earth Federation base Arinsuton on the space colony Nora. For seven years, Furitto has continued developing the mobile suit with the base's engineers, and at last the "Gundam" is complete. However, the UE has arrived at Nora, and Furitto must fight in the very Gundam he built himself.
Kenn's Comment: Story is written by LEVEL-5's president, Akihiro Hino.

It's an interesting story concept, and is probably why we start the series with such a young kid. The fact that this airs  so early in the day is a bit worrisome however. Will it be like the rest of it's Gundam brethren, or will it deviate from the norm and cater to a younger audience? Not really sure, but based on the PVs it could be either. This one's apparently going to be running for a good 50 or so episodes, so watching this one will be a bit of a commitment.

Btw, the PVs remind me of Macross, with the UE landing and blowing up the city.
