First of all, I hope you are going to enjoy your new Android phone
There is no problem to use Apple's prefered video format (mp4/mov) on Android. In fact Android support many more video formats than apple, and doesn't require application or conversion from one format to another, in order to load them onto your device.
While KIES is ok to do that, you can also use the USB cable to connect your phone, and copy the movies directly, just as if you would do with any external storage. You might want to keep them within the DCIM directory. It's where Android keep all of its digital media.
The only reason for iTunes movies not to play on Android, would be DRM.
All movies purchased from iTunes, are protected by digital rights management. Android doesn't support iTunes' DRM. However, if you get iTunes videos DRM removed and converted to another format, then you can freely move it to Android.
I'm sure there are many 3rd party tools that can do it for you. Look for "free DRM removal software".
If those however are not DRMs, would you mind sharing more info about these video files? Or how did you put them into itunes in the first place?
