We break the details down below.

Yasuhiro Irie (Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Alien Nine) will direct the project at studios Qubic Pictures and CGCG, with the team of Toshihiro Kawamoto (Cowboy Bebop, Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory) and Christophe Ferreira collaborating on concept designs and character designs.

Kimiko Ueno (The Royal Tutor, Kuromajyo-san ga Tōru!!) is writing the screenplay for the project.

Other confirmed staffers include:

  • Music: Kevin Penkin
  • Producer: Justin Leach
  • Backgrounds: Clover Xie

Netflix describes Eden as:

[…]Eden is set thousands of years in the future, where a city known as “Eden 3” is inhabited solely by robots whose former masters vanished a long time ago. On a routine assignment, two farming robots accidentally awaken a human baby girl from stasis questioning all they were taught to believe — that humans were nothing more than a forbidden ancient myth. Together, the two robots secretly raise the child in a safe haven outside Eden.
