During the Kidou Senshi Gundam 35th Anniversary Announcement, Gundam creator, Tomino Yushiyuki said that the new Gundam: Reconguista in G is not meant for the UC or Origin fans but for the children. The series was made so that children of Gundam fans can enjoy.
How the title of the series was decided
“G” was taken from “ガンタム大地に立つ” “Gundam Daichi ni Tatsu” (Gundam Raising)
“大地” means “Ground”
Originally レコンギスタ was supposed to be “レコン キ スタ” Reconguista was suppose to be Reconkista originally.
The reason why for the change was because they thought the title wouldn’t stand out.

Story Outline from Official Website (Translated by AnimeNewsNetwork):
Some time has passed since the end of the Universal Century, a history marked by space colonization and space warfare.
Humanity's prosperity, which ushered in a new era known as Reguild Century (R.C.), was believed to endure alongside the global peace.
It is the year R.C.1014.
The Capital Tower is an orbital elevator that rose above the Earth's surface and linked Earth and space. As the conduit of the Photon Battery energy source to the surface, it is regarded as sacred.
Beruri Zenamu is in the middle of training for the Capital Guard (established to protect the Capital Tower), when the tower is attacked by G-Serufu — a highly maneuverable mobile suit with technology that is not from any known country.
Beruri, who joins the battle in the maintenance mobile suit Rekuten, successfully captures the G-Serufu. However, Beruri feels something for the space pirate girl named Aiida Reihanton who piloted the G-Serufu. It is the same feeling he has for G-Serufu, even though he supposedly never seen it before. The G-Serufu, which should only be operable under specific conditions, is somehow started up by Beruri.
The objective of Aiida and the space pirates who attacked the Capital Tower, and the fate followed by Beruri who was chosen by G-Serufu, will lead to truths that will shake the entire Reguild Century era.
