My girl really like the characters but I wonder if she it too young to play. We played pandemic together, but I don’t know about this one. Did anyone played with kids? Is it a good fit?

Well, obviously depends on the child, but if she's into the characters, why not. Just play with the co-op agendas, and you'll be fine. It's a co-op after all, you can play with open hands and discuss the moves as much as you want. There's nothing unpleasant in the content, and when reading the background, you can filter it as you see fit.

Yes, I would say that the worst of it is the killing to prevent a war, but you can tone that down or recolor it however you are clever enough to.

Example: When playing Emerald with 5-year-olds (the mechanism is primarily Mancala, so no problem with the difficulty), rather than saying that the mama dragon killed the knights, we said she made them babysit the hatchling dragons.

From my point of view, I would not try so young because this game needs a mid/long term strategy and I'm afraid it could be complicated with a 8 years old child and she could be quickly lost and disappointed (as coop I would more advise Mice & Mystics at this age if she's fond of the minis of Dawn of Peacemakers).
But as written above, it depends on the child.

And if Dawn of Peacemakers works fine with her I'm interested to know it because I will then try with one of my daugter (who will be 8 later this year).
